There's no hardware OpenGL support on the PS3 (Sony deliberately deny
you access to it),  so I probably hadn't installed the gl headers and
hence configure didn't find them.  I assume you could get software gl
working as normal, but the performance would be so poor as to render (
pun intended) it almost pointless.

As an aside, are there any thoughts / plans / projects people know of to
make the ghc backend spit out cell spe/spu code?
