I'm trying to configure QT 5 through buildroot and some options are not available with the message requires an OpenGL-capable backend. I'm using buildroot 2013.08-rc1 but the same message comes up with 2013.05.

I'm targeting x86_64 core2 platform and I can't find any options to select OpenGL backend (or OpenGL anything actually).

How can I enable OpenGL backend in buildroot?

The OpenGL backend should be provided by Mesa. However, the Mesa packaging as of 2013.08 is not really great, and there are patches pending to improve it. See http://lists.busybox.net/pipermail/buildroot/2013-September/079070.html. Hopefully those patches will make their way soon in mainline Buildroot. Your feedback about them would be very useful.
