In git HEAD, there is "some" GL support. What I've always called
"pcb+gl" is a feature branch I've been maintaining separately from the
main PCB git repository.

The aim is to merge it all to upstream git HEAD eventually!.

To get the most speed and fancyness (including the more translucent
thin-draw polygons), check out PCB from here:

git clone git://repo.or.cz/geda-pcb/pcjc2.git
git checkout -b pcb+gl_experimental origin/pcb+gl_experimental

(If your card can cope with it, the "pcb+gl_experimental" branch has
better rendering speed and a few extra bits and pieces).

Otherwise, the default checkout should be the "pcb+gl" branch.

As others have said, just run ./configure and GL should be enabled as
the default. You might need to install your distro's libgtkglext-dev
package before it will build.

Best wishes,
