Machine 2 was the slowest at this task, so apparently there is no
hardware support for shading in the mga driver or the driver doesn't
like my hardware. Machine 2 does however run glxgears the fastest.
This tells me that your app doesn't use GLX, so it's probably doing all
the rendering using the machine's CPU, RAM, $deity knows what else. As
the Duron 900 is the slowest machine you've got.
Also check the GLU libraries. For nvidia cards the binary driver includes
libGL and libGLU files - on my debian machine I had to make fake packages
to satisfy dependencies, otherwise a mesa (software) version of libGLU
(and libGL) got installed.
