DWT-linux OpenGL Support Added
* Added OpenGL Support to DWT-Linux

In order to test the opengl snippet from the dwt-samples project, you will
need to use Derelict (installed via dsss or manually).

The GLCanvas surface allows you to use OpenGL via DerelictGL/GLU or via
standard GL import modules. However, Derelict is the preferred method of GL
support because of its simple GL version/extension loading mechanism.

Please test this feature. On my system, linux and win32 vesions of the
opengl test snippet run, but the linux version displays a filled/opaque
rotating donut while the windows version shows a wire-frame rotating donut. 
I welcome any feedback. :)

My apologies for my delay in adding this.

I ran the example on my Debian linux and get the wire-frame rotating 
donut. Everything worked smoothly, I also added a prebuild warning in the 
dsss.conf file of the samples that says Derelict must be installed, Frank 
I've sent the bundle to Frank so it should be up when he stops by. It 
also includes more snippets.

Okay, good to hear!  

I imagine the problem is with my system drivers then.

Could you please make a screenshot of your opengl window and also send 
it to Frank?
