This package requires libEGL. This used to be provided by the mesa package, but that package no longer has it in the linker search path. Now, there's a symlink in mesa-libgl, as well as in the various nvidia-libgl packages. mesa-libgl "provides" libegl now, but the nvidia packages don't yet, requested in  FS#50181 
This task depends upon

You could also say the libgl dep takes care of it, since all of the libgl packages in the repos provide the necessary links, but waiting for libegl provides would probably be a bit more universal.
