To the person who requested deletion because of the .so, open it with a text editor, it’s a linker script not a binary ELF. It instructs your linker to link against epoxy when it looks for GLEW, during compilation.

This can be useful for porting programs to Wayland or modern OpenGL or GLES, because GLEW still doesn’t support those very well.
