	I'm going to do a bit more investigation; currently the wxGLCanvas
demo doesn't work at all - it may be an installation problem.  And no, I
didn't spend much time on wx; it seemed strange that a wx-based demo (from
OpenGLContext, IIRC) worked poorly (but ran), when a GLUT-based version of
the same just flew on my 550Mhz, Radeon, OS X 10.2 Powerbook.  

	Bob Ippolito, thanks for posting the Makefile and other info.  It
doesn't sound promising if Togl is being dropped elsewhere, though.
