x11grab is not lgpl (that is what you meant
with x11, no?) and opengl is a slightly
obscure feature (but please enable auto-detection
if you think that opengl is a system library).
What are you trying to fix? We auto-detect
zlib, bzlib, lzma, vaapi, vdpau, iconv, sdl,
xv, alsa, jack and I don't remember that
users had problems with it. I always thought
we consider these libraries system-libraries
(and I still believe so).
Otoh, we would not have all these fixes for
xcb in our tree if we had not activated
