is that really a problem with the driver, or with the
particular implementation of opengl that you have?
i actually just installed vxl on my freebsd machine.
i had the same problem with not finding
XMesaGetBackBuffer. i ended up downloading the
latest source of mesa from http://www.mesa3d.org,
recompiling, and then linking vxl to that lib
by editing CMakeCache.txt and rerunning cmake.
it then found the symbol just fine.
