I tried your suggestion, no dice, but you gave me an idea... rtfm! So
I read the README file for gtkglext, and there is a flag that allows
you to specify where to look and if you tell it to look in the /System/
Library/Frameworks/OpenGL.framework/Versions/A/Libraries it seems to
configure and install okay. Unfortunately that is not enough in my
case as I am trying to get a macport to work that requires this.
Although I have now installed gtkglext, macports doesn't know it and
tries to install it again. Of course it fails, and so I am back to
the beginning. This is definitely an interesting development, I
wonder if I can pass this flag to the ports command? Another option
would be to figure out how macports knows it installed something and
just trick it into knowing it has it. Maybe it is time to rtfm for
