Hi Eliot,

I'm afraid that I do not really know what all got loaded. All I can say
for sure is that I was having trouble locating the right GL package to
load on this version of Ubuntu, and that the Pharo VM package loaded up
enough stuff to provide the required 32-bit runtimes.

Note that this is a runtime library (not *-dev) issue, and it is more of
an Ubuntu distro question than a VM question. I have not yet tried a
Cog/Spur build on that laptop (although I did do the interpreter build in
both 32 and 64 bit variations, so it should work).
