Thanks Mike - it seems that compilation runs fine again using the current default branch.

Can you try building the current default branch and see if this works for you now with the same configuration options? I made a change to fix building with all optional libraries disabled and this error message looks similar to what I was seeing.

I am compiling with "--without-opengl --disable-gui --without-framework-opengl" at the moment.
The problem I have now is very similar to the one that was reported and fixed in #44017.

So it's possible to have OSMesa installed but not OpenGL?

Looking at the configure script, there appears to be some additional confusion now about "native graphics" because it is disabled if OpenGL support is missing from FLTK, but FLTK is not strictly required to have "native graphics" now. I'll try to sort this out.

What requirements are there for compiling with OSMesa? OpenGL libraries or just headers to define types? And which headers are required?
