Perhaps you have already checked, but are you sure there are not any
extra files around? The ones in /usr/lib may be the correct
Nvidia versions, but try doing a "locate libGL" and see if some show up
somewhere else as well...

I had the same problem a few weeks ago, I am pretty sure I was getting
the exact same configure output. I had though I had already looked for
leftover Mesa libs, but after much head scratching I finally found an
extraneous (Mesa) library under /usr/X11R6/lib, to which the test
scripts were linking instead of the Nvidia version under /usr/lib.
Deleting the /usr/X11R6/lib version cleaned the problem right up. This
was with Debian/testing, YMMV.
