Question: I will start building new rpm packages for redhat, suse and
debian. Shall I make different builds or is the configure script able to
check, whether 3d is possible or not? Does anyone know the dependencies?
At least one should install gtkglarea or gtkglext and ftfl (no rpm
possible, maybe I will build also an ftgl.rpm)

This morning I made a quick test (it works now), but I figured out, that
changing the board design will not change the preview in the options

I will put these and a few more questions (concerning 3d) into the faq.
I have some experiences with nvidia and ati.
