There is a bit of a difference in the two sets of headers and I think 
mixing and matching Mesa and Nvidia is generally a bad idea.  After all, 
you should have the headers to compile against the libGL you are 
actually using.   Also, I ran into a error a while back- can't remember 
what though - that wanted Nvidia headers since I was using the nvidia 
driver and its libraries.
