It would be slower than the non-GL version, due to the software
emulation of the graphics calls.

Your X11 driver might have had 2D acceleration for the non-GL version's
rendering calls, for example. Even if the non-GL calls were software
drawn, the GL ones are still more complicated.

Anyway, it would be worth testing to check.
