      Description

      We compile ROOT as described in this alidist recipe. For some reasons, it installs a GL folder in ROOT's include directory of a quite ancient version. Consequently, when we link against ROOT,  OpenGL gets picked up from ROOT instead of using the latest version provided by the system which results in compilation errors with software that requires more modern OpenGL versions unless the GL folder in the ROOT include directory is removed/renamed.

      Can we make ROOT reliably pick up OpenGL from the system?
