I agree with you. My statements were only related to rgl on FreeBSD. 
With the changes from Brian since yesterday I am finally able to compile 
and work with this package on all our FreeBSD scientific desktops.

At the same time I am very conscious about the great job of Daniel and 
Duncan. Without there work we would not have rgl :-)
