I was not aware of change in web address.  Sorry about it.  I will correct the link on my web pages.

I think you did not read Ted's web pages carefully.  Brian Kasper's binaries are

mesa30.tar.bz2 (469 Kb)
glut37.tar.bz2 (159 Kb)
 Mesa 3.0 and GLUT 3.7 ported to Cygwin32 by Brian Kasper 

If you want to use repGL library, I would suggest you use Mesa 3.0.  I compiled repGL against Mesa 3.0.

Compiling Mesa with wing32.dll is not good.  The compiled binaries may give you problems later. If you intend to compile Mesa 3.1, use "Make gcc" option instead.  It will not use Wing32.dll.  If you compile Mesa 3.1 using Wing32.dll, your compiled libraries will have wgl instead of glx -- if you want wgl then why not use Ted's Makefiles to make Win32 native Mesa libraries. 

 I recommend you use Brian Kasper's  precompiled Mesa 3.0 binaries from

Remove the matvec.c from the Makefile.  It is an old file which is no longer used but somehow reference to it is left in the Makefile -- as Brian Paul wrote me a month ago. guys will correct this problem in the final release of Mesa 3.1.
