#6 configure fails to find opengl libraries


I am using the ftgl 2.1.3~rc5 download package and i am trying to compile it on Windows 2003 SP2 using MinGW.

When i execute the following from msys terminal

$ ./configure --with-ft-prefix=/d/home/work/priv/openanimator-v_lib/engine/depl

I get the following message:

checking for FreeType -- version >= 9.0.3... yes
checking GL/gl.h usability... yes
checking GL/gl.h presence... yes
checking for GL/gl.h... yes
checking for OpenGL framework (Darwin-specific)... no
checking for GL library... no
configure: error: GL library could not be found, please specify its location with --with-gl-lib. If this still fails, please contact henryj@paradise.net.nz, include the string FTGL somewhere in the subject line and provide a copy of the config.log file that was left behind.

config.log is attached.

    Could you please indicate where libopengl32.lib is located on your system?
