If you have an nvidia card, the OpenGL libraries are included with their 
proprietary driver. If you don't, I think you can use the mesa version. 
The packages to install on ubuntu gutsy are libgl1-mesa-glx and/or 
libgl1-mesa-dev. I assume it's the same for breezy. Note that's 

If you encounter this kind of problem in the future, you can do a search 
for the packages that have a file you need/want by going to 
packages.ubuntu.com. For the -lGL error, you need a library named 
libGL.so, so you search for a package containing a file with that name.
