GLEW is broken in a special way: it doesn't provide the .so.1 library,
so applications link against .so.1.11 or .so.1.10 instead. This is not
something you would detect when running checkpkg (common sense says to
ignore soname changes which are not in the first digit).

Anyways, before rebuilding a lot of shit, please check what's wrong with
GLEW, you can do the rebuild all over again when this is fixed.
