Rejected. libGLU is something else, and we can't depend on it, it would
break OpenGL on some weirder systems. Also it probably wouldn't work for
nVidia, since they have a libGLU.a but no libGL.a (I expect it won#t
even link then).
What does "does not work properly" mean? If it's slow your libGL.a is
probably a leftover from the software MesaGL, and should be deleted (and
you should tell ATI to move it out of the way when installing their
drivers). If it isn't, you should also tell ATI to fix it.
In any case, the right way IMHO is deleting the libGL.a
