Yes, i'm speaking about SDL/ALLEGRO.
If i find OpenGL so much faster, i may reconsider the software render.

Assumed that demos compiled on my machine with the original makefile runs 
correctly, i suppose i should add somewhat the GLX extensions at my program 
and at TuxKart.
I think i must figure out what is the compile parameter i'm missing.
