Ia32-libs ships the libgl binary from the i386 archive. It does not
and can not build the source so it can not patch the path.
The only way this bug can be fixed is if you help by paching the
normal i386 and amd64 libgl package. Others like gtk and pango
maintainers have done so for the benefit of our users.
If you are unwilling then this bug is a wont-fix.
