The problem is that if I link dynamic against the GL libs, that I also

doesn't really make it a useable solution if the resulting binary will
only work on 50% of the systems out there.
Oh, I see.
If you have an old machine lying around somewhere then the
only solution I can see would be to install an older-glibc
Linux distro and use that as a build machine.
If you're very careful then you can probably put together
a set of older libs to link against on your main system,
but that's a real headache to get right I think.
