iMX53 es2 samples fail on fbdev

I have built the OpenGL 2.0 lessons for the iMX53 targetting fbdev.  When I run these on the board the eglInitialize fails.  The X11 samples work fine.  I also tried my own application and eglInitialize returns the error EGL_NOT_INITIALIZED.  Has anyone gotten these examples to work?

I also find it odd that the EGL library is linked against the X libs so even if you build targetting fbdev you still need to link the X libs and have them available on the target.  What is the reason for this or is there a way around it?
