Sorry to tell you this, but the only OpenGL API available under X11 is
GLX and GLX is inherently bound to Xlib.

What you are looking at is the GLX X11 extension. This is something that
the GLX API might use behind your back to do its thing, but by itself
this GLX extension does not give you the GLX API.

Who needs a ~/.signature anyway?
