We already support it.

The OpenGL API is supported by the base OS (ie. Windows or Wine) as a
library called opengl32.dll, so doesn't need any extra explicit
support from the cross-compiler project.

However where you might get stuck is that we don't currently ship GLUT
or freeglut.  I'm quite certain at some point I packaged freeglut, but
I can't seem to find it right now.

You'll have to use another high level library (eg. SDL which we do
package) instead.  Or compile freeglut -- a bit tricky because the
build system doesn't understand cross-compilation.

There's also a specific mailing list for Fedora MinGW questions:


and if you want to package something up, I've written some notes here:


For anything else, see our SIG:
