[fpc-devel] OpenGL library loading

I've noticed that openGL libraies are loaded in the initialization 
section and if the loading fails it writelns something and halts.

I think this is innapropriate. I've made some changes but first I want 
to know your opinion.

Do you think it's better to let the user load the library(via some 
simple procedure) or have it initialized automaticly. If so, IMHO an 
exception should be used(because of windows crashing with writeln).

I've currently made it to try and load the library in the initialization 
but without any "failure notice". I've added a GL[u[t]]IsLoaded function 
so the users can see and also TryLoadGL[u[t]].

Tell me which way to go and I'll implement it.
