    In the short term, you can add a debian/shlibs.local file to force
a dependency on the virtual package libgl1 instead of mesag3-glide2.
See the packaging manual, section 12.1.  Putting the following line in
that file will probably take care of your problem:

libGL 1 libgl1

    In the long term, you should file a bug against mesag3-glide2 for
not providing a correct default shlibs.
