use only mesa or opengl. If you're having problems compiling with the
--with-mesa flag (stuff about OSMesa), it's because some binary packages
of Mesa don't come with the Off-screen rendering that Mesa is supposed to
offer. The simplest solution is to just use the --with-opengl flag
instead (your Mesa installation should have set some symlinks so that
libMesa.so and libGL.so are the same thing) and it should work fine.
