It's odd.  I can't figure it out, since it still works for me - just  
like in the example in the macosx readme.

One problem I noticed with specifying opengl-includes, instead of x- 
includes, is that NVIZ includes the X11 headers setting but not the  
OpenGL headers setting.

	$(INC) \

ifeq ($(OPENGL_X11),1)

Even if you get opengl to work by changing this to add the opengl  
includes, the X11 problem will still remain.  Somehow, the X11 check  
in configure is failing for some Mac users, unless x-libraries and x- 
headers are explicitly set.
