Upgrade to nvidia-340xx-utils version 340.102-5 breaks compile time OpenGL (-lGL) linking.
The reason is, that /usr/lib/nvidia is not in the (compile time) linker search path. When added "manually" using the LIBRARY_PATH environment variable, the linking succeeds.

With older versions (prior to removing nvidia-340xx-libgl) -lGL linking worked fine without fiddling with the search path.

Steps to reproduce:
With nvidia-340xx-utils installed (as the only libgl package) try to compile any project that uses -lGL, eg. any QT5 project that uses OpenGL.
This task depends upon
