I think this should depend on the interface name, 'libgl', and not specifically on libglvnd.

There are other providers of 'libgl', like the AMD proprietary GPU driver (amdgpu-pro-oglp).

@SmashedSqwurl Thank you I was going to check the issue today since Python 3.10 was out and got issue re-building libfreenect.

I ran into some issues building this package today. It looks like the CMake variable for the GLUT libraries changed at some point. Adding this patch to the PKGBUILD got it building successfully for me:

Thanks for the information. The issues should be solved by now.
