glew has a few problems with the fglrx drivers. For example, GL_ARB_framebuffer_object will register just fine with glewinfo. However, when you initialize glew after libsdl initializes some of the variables become false. A good example of this is to try Catalyst 10.6 (and probably 10.7) with vdrift the initialization of the framebuffer object via the boolean fails.

    One limitation of glewinfo is that the output is only valid for a particular OpenGL context it created, which doesn't necessarily reflect a context being used in an application. Perhaps the GLEW API should also provide an Info() query for dumping out OpenGL context diagnostic information at runtime, to help debug this kind of issue.
