Please indicate which platform you are using. Looking at the name of
your defconfig, it seems you're using an i.MX6 Karo platform.

The support for OpenGL on i.MX6 is still not merged in Buildroot, see
the patches from Jérôme Pouiller in patchwork.

Notice that the Vivante user-space OpenGL drivers require glibc, so you
will have to switch to glibc instead of uClibc.

My colleagues have successfully tested Jérôme patches very recently,
and they just work fine, as long as you're using a kernel based on
Freescale 3.10.17 kernel.
