Most likely you need to move the libraries shipped with the game
(libgcc, libstdc++ etc) out of the way to make sure it uses the system

You can use the environment variable LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose to get more
information in cases like these.

I'm not really sure WHY this is necessary though, even new Linux games
ships broken like this.
