./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

ok
scrap that

i've just got the mdk 9.2 download edition
so have a whole new set of things to srt out
before i start adding "obscure" games


btw

no kernel-source on the disks I have just bought

leaves me with a wapping 40MB download (56k modem)
