I don't understand. This isn't like libpng which can be part of Qt...
OpenGL is not "part" of Qt, Qt only has OpenGL support when that's enabled.
i.e. Qt itself uses the OpenGL that comes with your distro, and I guess KDE
only uses Qt OpenGL (QGLWidget), otherwise KDE could make some opengl
calls but couldn't display the result inside a QWidget... pretty useless.
