it's not that simple. dfb, ogl, sdl a.s.o. can stack up in varius ways.
you can have at least the following (in linux):

sdl on top of dfb, dfb on top of sdl, sdl on top of X11, sdl on top of
ogl (with ogl backend patch), ogl on top of dfb.

so as usual it comes down to the "what are your goals" question.
