Hmmm, this looks like a configure problem. Could you please send a log of
the shell session and the generated config.log and config.status?

What OpenGL implementation are you using? Mesa or SUN's own? I've never tried
the latter due to the lack of privileges to install it, but I would be very
interested in getting things up and running with it.

Yes, but you will probably lose some available functionality then.

A quick workaround would be generating an object file containing just
the dummy glXGetProcAddressARB and add this to the linking step via
editing GHC's (or your own local) package.conf file. If you've installed
GHC yourself, adding some #ifdefs to
and rebuild GHC, which should be quite fast if nothing else has changed.
