[GRASS-user] Compiling NVIZ / OpenGL with nVidia drivers

Perhaps more a general Linux question than a specific grass one, but  
does anyone know how to compile GRASS with OpenGL and NVIZ support?

I am running Ubuntu 9.04 with the proprietary nVidia drivers for my  
graphics card.  Whenever I try to install OpenGL it breaks my nVidia  
settings.  NVIZ works fine when I download the binary in a  
pre-compiled version of grass.

So far, I can only get grass to compile with --without-opengl.
