Description Andrei Slavoiu 2015-02-04 23:20:53 UTC
The "X, GLX and OpenGL" block would set USE_OPENGL based on the value of HAVE_GL before the "check if we can include both GL and GLES2 at the same time" block is executed and sets HAVE_GL to false.

Attached patch also fixes 2 typos I found in the process.

Good catch!

It's probably simpler to backport for the USE_OPENGL issue.  The two typos need fixing and require a separate patch using git format-patch :)
