AIUI openGL ES is used on 32-bit ARM because that's what the GPU
drivers target/support. I presume this hasn't changed (although I
understand that for latest OpenGL the Desktop and ES specs got merged
to some common set).

So I guess anything that uses GL stuff outside the ES API won't
actually work on 32-bits arm anyway so there is not much point
building it there.

But my understanding of the graphics stack is weak so I could well be
out-of-date or otherwise confused.
