Which it does.  It would be jolly nice if people actually checked
trivially checkable facts before suggesting tools are broken.

root@xoog:~ # ls -ld /usr/include/GL/
ls: cannot access /usr/include/GL/: No such file or directory
root@xoog:~ # aptitude install mesa-common-dev
Reading package lists... Done


Writing extended state information... Done

root@xoog:~ # ls -ld /usr/include/GL/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Apr 25 07:26 /usr/include/GL/
root@xoog:~ #

Could you (Heikki Orsila) please try removing and then installing the
mesa-common-dev package and see if that fixes the problem?
