[opam-devel] lablgl.1.04

On my Windows test environment I can not use "lablgl-20120306" because
of the glShader module that I myself provided before I get a Windows
test environment.

But the vanilla "lablgl-1.04" works fine.

If I've understood correctly Opam is a source package manager, so
maybe opam could provide "lablgl.1.04" for Windows users that have a
similar environment than mine ?

My windows test environment is:
Windows 7 starter with protz's ocaml version 4.00.1

Well in this environment only lablgl itself compiles out of the box.
LablGlut does not.
Togl (Tk) does not either.
(I think that the devel libs for both glut and tkgl are there)

LablGlut and Togl are for windowing, so if we use OCamlSDL instead
this is just fine we don't need these. OCamlSDL1 compiles out of the
box in my win env.

In this environment I compile the Vanilla LablGL like this:

cp Makefile.config.mingw Makefile.config
# need to add -I/usr/include, the patch below does this:
patch < Makefile.config-cygwin-needs-I_usr_include.patch

# don't build anything else than lablgl itself or we get errors:
make lib
make libopt

# it seems that the file "dlllablgl.dll" is not installed, so:
cp src/dlllablgl.dll "$LABLGL_INSTALLDIR"/

Now a hello-world works fine.
(I'm providing this hello at the end after the config patch)
