sdl testgl.c framerate on freerunner?

I have a neo1973, and I was wondering how different the gl  
capabilities are from the freerunner when doing fullscreen swaps with  

For a comparison, could someone with a freerunner try running the sdl  
example program testgl.c (it comes with sdl) and report the framerate?  
  I've attached a binary that I compiled and ran on my neo and the  
source in case you'd rather compile it.

On my neo, testgl gets about 19 FPS without having much else running  
(I'm running FSO 4.  I also did "/etc/init.d/frameworkd stop" to  
reduce cpu usage)

- You probably need libgl1 and libsdl-1.2-0 opks installed.
( opkg install libgl1 )

- You probably want to stop frameworkd to make the comparison fair:
   /etc/init.d/frameworkd stop

- Then run the binary:
  and wait a few seconds before hitting ctrl-c.  The FPS number should  
print out -- that's the number I'm looking for.

I'm thinking of writing a (really) simple game.  If the FPS on the  
freerunner is much slower (and I expect it to be slower for now), I'll  
avoid doing fullscreen swaps unless/until there's an accelerated glamo  

Thanks for the help,
