Off-Screen Mesa implementation of the OpenGL API Maintained by:gahr@FreeBSD.org Port Added: 09 Apr 2010 08:44:52 License: not specified in port
Mesa is a 3-D graphics library with an API which is very similar to that
of OpenGL*. To the extent that Mesa utilizes the OpenGL command syntax or
state machine, it is being used with authorization from Silicon Graphics,
Inc. However, the author makes no claim that Mesa is in any way a
compatible replacement for OpenGL or associated with Silicon Graphics, Inc.
This is a Off-Screen version of Mesa in order to do off-screen rendering in
other packages like VTK. Offscreen rendering is useful for a
number of things, such as batch processing, parallel processing, and
Replace USE_GCC=4.6+ and USE_GCC=4.4+ by USE_GCC=yes.
Right now this is a noop in the former case and a noop in the latter
case unless lang/gcc44 has been installed explicitly.
This puts a bit more emphasis on standardizing on a canonical version
"current" GCC and makes it easier to update that canonical version
by changing the default in Mk/bsd.gcc.mk and updating the lang/gcc port.
That is, USE_GCC=yes means "use a decent/modern version of GCC" without
having to worry about details.
