Question Compiling winex with Nvidia drivers


When i launch "./configure" for winex, it has a problem with opengl support.
Nvidia provides headers with their drivers, but they dont provide "glext.h", wich is needed by winex for opengl support.
So you weither got to download it separately or install mesa xlib dev package, wich provides the headers.
i tried both and got same error each time:
checking GL/gl.h usability... yes
checking GL/gl.h presence... yes
checking for GL/gl.h... yes
checking GL/glx.h usability... yes
checking GL/glx.h presence... yes
checking for GL/glx.h... yes
checking GL/glext.h usability... no
checking GL/glext.h presence... yes
configure: WARNING: GL/glext.h: present but cannot be compiled
configure: WARNING: GL/glext.h: check for missing prerequisite headers?
configure: WARNING: GL/glext.h: proceeding with the preprocessor's result
checking for GL/glext.h... yes
checking for up-to-date OpenGL version... yes
checking for thread-safe OpenGL version... no
checking for glXCreateContext in -lGL... yes
checking for glXGetProcAddressARB in -lGL... yes
checking for OpenGL extension functions prototypes... no
when i look into the configure log file it looks like this:

configure:6860: checking GL/glext.h usability
configure:6869: gcc -c -g -O2 -I/usr/X11R6/include conftest.c >&5
In file included from configure:6897:
/usr/X11R6/include/GL/glext.h:1467: parse error before `red'
/usr/X11R6/include/GL/glext.h:1468: parse error before `mode'
/usr/X11R6/include/GL/glext.h:1469: parse error before `mode'
/usr/X11R6/include/GL/glext.h:1470: parse error before `target'
/usr/X11R6/include/GL/glext.h:1471: parse error before `target'
if anyone know what to do, some help would be welcome
