Only needed for r3.showdspf.openGL  (You'll need Mesa or OpenGL widgets
which are separate from the base Mesa or OpenGL stuff).

Make sure the Gmakefile has $(XDRLIB) in the $(CC) line.  If it does
already, then also add $(ZLIB), though possibly your gmake5 is not up
to date.  Looks like a linker problem (need to have -lz flag and, 
obviously, libz).
