Why not call it graphics/libgl? That is what it installs[1]. It is
somewhat absurd that to install libGL you need to find MesaLib (or
worse, mesa, which doesn't even have "lib" in the name).

[1] It doesn't install anything with "mesa" in the name except
"include/GL/osmesa.h" and optionally "include/EGL/eglmesaext.h".
