Attached. Thinking some more about it, I noticed that I hadn't
supplied a new config.h.in with the three new symbols, so the
configure check's output couldn't propagate to the source code. I'm
sorry, I think this is just a local problem due to this error.

A short test later: yes, patching config.h.in gets rid of this issue.
Sorry again about the wrong error report.

So the simple fix is to --disable-gl on systems with too old MesaLib
like NetBSD-5 and lose some speed (anything else?)?
