Hello Jeff,

I tried a virtual ubuntu 10.04 this morning and could install the mesa 
libraries (xlibmesa-gl,  xlibmesa-glu-dev  xlibmesa-glu) and get the 
configure working.
It seems the libGL.so library is not found in your case, when I make a 
locate, it is under /usr/lib/mesa (libGLU.so is under /usr/lib).

I'm generating a new fullsrc package with the last cvs changes and with 
a patch in wxWidgets that prevent to compile (a conflict with recent 
versions of glib)
I'll let you know when it will published.

Thanks,
Laurent
