When I use this new version i've got an error : (I use c99 mode)

c:\devkitPro\libnds\include\nds\arm9\videoGL.h||In function 'glFlush':|
c:\devkitPro\libnds\include\nds\arm9\videoGL.h|731|error: 'asm' undeclared (first use in this function)|
c:\devkitPro\libnds\include\nds\arm9\videoGL.h|731|note: each undeclared identifier is reported only once for each function it appears in|
c:\devkitPro\libnds\include\nds\arm9\videoGL.h|731|error: expected ';' before 'volatile'|

I've replaced asm with __asm__ for the moment...
