I thought that might be the problem with something screwy in the way I
compiled mesa, but with MS OpenGL and SGI OpenGL, the DLLs are already
pre-compiled. I assume that at least the MS OpenGL that comes with
Win95/98 is not a debug version. Besides, when I use "dlltool",
doesn't --dllname specify the name of the DLL that will be used?

Thanks for the suggestion though. I'll try again with mesa, making sure
I get a release version. Unfortunately, even if it works, I don't think
it will help with my other problem. That is, getting the error message
"linked to missing export GLU32.DLL:_gluPerspective." Hey, I just
noticed this, but why is this error message specifying GLU32.DLL, not
GLU32D.DLL? I think perhaps
--dllname doesn't exactly do what I think it does.
