Yes, but in an interestingly different way.

$ ls /usr/X11R6/lib/*GL*
/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.a       /usr/X11R6/lib/libGLU.so.1
/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1    /usr/X11R6/lib/libGLU.so.1.3
/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2  /usr/X11R6/lib/libGLw.a

The .so is missing.  So the linker links in the .a instead (it doesn't
know anything about this .so.1 idea), and we go phut.

Can do.

Revolutions do not require corporate support.
