Thanks for drawing this to my attention.

Yes, it seems that the the glext.h header file (which comes from Khronos 
via the w32api-headers package) now has the fix (svn r27313) to add the 
extra argument to the prototype, but the XML used for the generated code 
(which comes from Khronos via the khronos-opengl-registry package) is 
only on svn r27116.

I'm afraid you'll have to fix this manually until I generate a new 
khronos-opengl-registry package

Since keeping these things in sync is kind of a pain, and limits it to 
handling GL functions which are known about at build time, I'd like to 
replace this compile-time thunk generation with something which does it 
dynamically at run-time, but I haven't found the time to do that...
