I have tested it again: ii  xlibmesa-gl-dev 4.2.1-12.1

It seems locate don't find /usr/include/GL/gl.h,
but it exists, as a sym link:

$ locate GL/gl.h
$ ls -l /usr/include/GL/gl.h
/usr/include/GL/gl.h -> ../../X11R6/include/GL/gl.h

OK, I understand.

I'll try to investigate the problem (here I paste a snapshot of the
relevant error messages). One possibility is checking that installing
mesa-common-dev solves the problems in my desktop computer. I can=20
also  try actualising xlibmesa-gl-dev to the latest version.

Simultaneously, I'll continue working in porting the packages to the
