libglvnd is the "GL Vendor-Neutral Dispatch library" [0]. It provides
libGL, libGLESv1_CM, libGLESv2, etc, and then dispatches those calls
to the underlying hardware driver. This allows a single libGL.so to
work for Mesa and nvidia-drivers for example. If
media-libs/raspberrypi-userland doesn't support libglvnd (which it
doesn't as far as I can tell) that kind of throws a wrench in the plan
for IMO minimal benefit.
