Compiling OpenGL applications

The GL/gl.h file was not writen with -mno-cygwin in mind. You could get 
arround the problem by editing /usr/include/GL/gl.h as follow:

find a block like the following near the head of the file:

--------------- SNIP ---------------
#if defined(__CYGWIN__)
# ifndef APIENTRY
#  define APIENTRY __attribute__ ((__stdcall__))
#  define GL_APIENTRY_DEFINED
# endif
/* define APIENTRY to null string if we aren't on Cygwin */
#else
# define APIENTRY
# define GL_APIENTRY_DEFINED
#endif
--------------- SNAP ---------------

and replace it with this:

--------------- SNIP ---------------
#if defined(__CYGWIN__)
# ifndef APIENTRY
#  define APIENTRY __attribute__ ((__stdcall__))
#  define GL_APIENTRY_DEFINED
# endif
/* define APIENTRY to null string if we aren't on Cygwin and it is not 
defined */
#else
# ifndef APIENTRY
#  define APIENTRY
#  define GL_APIENTRY_DEFINED
# endif
#endif
--------------- SNAP ---------------

This fix will be included in the next release of the package.
