How do people get around the problem of using both the stand alone
Mesa GL library and a GLX/DRI enabled X server on the same machine?

I see three solutions (or hacks):
1. Use LD_LIBRARY_PATH to choose between different library paths (I'm
assuming Linux). This is what I do.
2. Write script files to copy either /usr/local/Mesa/lib/libGL.so
or /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so on top of /usr/lib/libGL.so as needed
(substitute appropriate paths). Call the scripts "useMesa" and
"useDRI", for example.
3. Modify the Mesa makefiles to generate libMesaGL.so (like in the
old days) and link apps either with libGL.so or libMesaGL.so.
