I'm not sure how ABI compatible are GLEW releases, but the default install induces a forced ABI incompatibility.
I described the problem here: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=385631.
The working assumption for GLEW version numbering is that GLEW 1.7.(x+n) ought to be binary compatible with GLEW 1.7.x, where n>0. In other words, when there is a breaking ABI change, we increment the minor version, say from 1.7.x to 1.8.0
So it ought to be fine for a GLEW 1.7 symlink to point to 1.7.0, or 1.7.1, ... etc
