I considered this in qgl.m4... it should work also with GL and GLU ....

I think that´s the problem for 80% of the people, since they installed a
QT-binary-rpm and these are normally compiled without the QT-OpenGL

(often also w/o gif support - which means that some picture-stuff in the
qt-online documentation is also missing).
