  That is strange and unexpected and could indicate a bug, perhaps in the
building of the import libraries.  Can you show us a very simple testcase,
e.g. a trivial C program with just a "main" function that calls a few of these
functions that cause missing references?  (Also, double-check that you have
the exact corresponding version of the lib package and the -devel package by
running "cygcheck -c libGL1 libGL-devel", just in case).
