Not sure if this is a bug, but I still thought I should report it. I've seen 2 programs now which fail to compile on rawhide, because the function pointer typedef's for GL 1.3 functions are not defined by the rawhide OpenGL headers.
These function pointer typedefs, like for example PFNGLACTIVETEXTUREPROC, are
defined in GL/glext.h. But only if GL_VERSION_1_3 is not defined yet when glext.h
gets included. These days glext.h gets included automatically by GL.h, which
defines GL_VERSION_1_3, but does not define the function pointer typedefs.
For now I've worked around this in both programs using this (ugly) construction,
better suggestions are welcome:
#define __glext_h_ // Don't let gl.h include glext.h
/* We want / need the OpenGL 1.3 function pointer typedefs */
Note that under F-11, all that is needed is:
This is intentional, afaict. The reasoning appears to be the same as the #ifdef _XOPEN_SOURCE and such that happens in glibc's headers: avoid polluting the namespace of programs unless they were explicitly written to expect the newer APIs. I think it's silly for pre-3.0 API, but it's the OpenGL ARB's decision, not mine.
