?? So you don't want to install the official glcorearb.h for some
reason, and me suggesition of just relying upon gl.h and have the OSG
add the extra's still isn't enough for you and think that you still
need an extra dependency.

?? What missing functions?

It might not be working for YOU, with you particular preference
for/against certain things, but I'm pretty sure that there are other
Windows users using GL3 without any issues.

I'm not a Window users myself so I'll defer to others to help you work
out what you need to do.
