Question ./configure and gl.h problems


greetings

i'm trying to compile a game (xracer) and it keeps stopping
with the message
checking for glNewList in -lGL... no
checking for glNewList in -lMesaGL... no
configure: error: GL library was not found

so i did ./configure --help
and it said that i needed to add
--with-gl-libs=DIR
so i did locate gl.h and locate GL
and it came back with
/usr/X11R6/include/GL
so i added this to the =DIR
and..

same error message
i played around a little with different paths, to all the different locations returned by locate
all the same

can anyone tell me..

a) can i pass 2 locations to configure eg: --with-gl-libs=/blah/GL /blah/libgl

b) is this a version mismatch ?

c) what am i doing wrong?

to give you some perspective
this is the first time i've had to pass options to configure
i do not know programming or whatever
my previous method has been "if it doesn't configure without options? leave it alone"
but enough running away
