because it is a third-party library.
To me, your proposal sounds similar to "why not simply package
Operating System libraries with the VM".
Because in this case you need cairo. But in case of OpenGL, you will
need opengl libs.. so "package everything" goes nowhere.

i know that using external libs sometimes is painful. But this is like
that. And we're not alone with these problems.
I think there's many other software which have to deal with it.

 Another solution is to implement everything by own :)
