Is this the output of the automatic check that's done, or did you enter /usr/include as the search path?

If the former, I'm not sure what's going on as Configure shouldn't find the root directory of OpenGL as /usr/include

Otherwise, if you entered /usr/include as OGLHOME, then that's what's causing the issue. OGLHOME is the 'root' directory for OpenGL, so is the directory containing include, lib directories etc. On Ubuntu OGLHOME should be /usr, and will, in most cases, be found automatically (you've installed mesa-common-dev which contains the relevant files).

So if Configure isn't finding OGLHOME automatically, just enter /usr and it should be o.k.

Ben.
