In /usr/lib/qt-2.1.0, libqgl.a fails to link against libqt.so.2.1.0
There are several unresolved references reported. Name mangling
does NOT appear to be the problem as a dump of the name tables

If I compile my own version of libqgl.a (eg., using qt-2.0.2 sources),
and link with it instead of the system-supplied libraries, everything

libqgl is obsolete (it's part of the current Qt base).
Update Qt to the current version and you can use the GL classes without the 
need for a separate libqgl.
