OpenGL on windows isn't libGL.a, it's libopengl.a or libopengl32.a (I forget).
Try -lopengl or -lopengl32 (I *THINK* the difference is the 32 means it's
mickysloths 1.1 software implementation, where without it's either the sgi 1.2
or the IHV version?) If that doesn't do it for you, I have some automake /
autoconf stuff I'm using to compile opengl apps on windows using sdl that I can
dig up for you

or anyone else that might be interested
