libepoxy does the opengl extension handling for us.

It also is helpful for trouble-shooting as it prints nice error messages
instead of silently failing or segfaulting in case we do something
wrong, like using gl commands not supported by the current context.
How widely supported is this library? How long has it been around,
is it carried by all the distros, does it work ok on OSX and Windows?

I'm a bit uncertain about adding dependencies that would limit the
scope where we can provide important functionality like 3D

It is relatively new (a bit more than a year old), supposed to work on
both osx and windows (didn't test myself though), and it seems to be
commonly included in distros (although newer versions only).

It successfully disables OpenGL support on my 12.3 installation and thus fixes compilation there. Hooray ;).
