This bug complains about a missing osmesa.h. However, this file is not
even in xlibmesa-dev, but only in xlibosmesa-dev, the development
package for the off-screen rendering library. So it seems geomview
should build-depend on that, and depend on xlibosmesa3 as well. From
that package's page:

  The off-screen rendering library (OSMesa) is an extension to Mesa, not
  an implementation of any OpenGL standard; therefore, it is packaged
  separately, so that any OpenGL-conformant library may be installed on
  a Debian system, and OpenGL-based programs may depend on any of them.
  The OSMesa library, however, specifically depends on the Mesa library.

In light of the above, could you close it again, please?
