I also tried to package perl-opengl (as a prerequisite for slic3r); the
problem is that during the configure phase it wants to do this:

In order to test your GPU's capabilities, run this make under an X11 shell
freeglut (./glversion): failed to open display ''
make: *** [Makefile:24: glversion.txt] Error 1

to create the file, which will presumably depend on the GPU in the build
machine, a no-go. Nix works around this by providing a fixed file. I did not
investigate whether this will work everywhere; it clearly leaks information
on the machine where it was created. In my case, for instance, I got "Skylake"
instead of "Ivybridge". It all feels a bit brittle; for instance, we have
freeglut@2.8.1 and @3.2.1 in Guix; I suppose "GLUT=20801" refers to @2.8.1.
Will it work with a newer version? Our mesa is @20.0.8 and not 10.2.6.

But I also do not know if there is a better solution.


PS: I spotted a frowned-upon "cdr" in the package ;-)
