[SDL] OpenGL linker errors?

I'm happy to try that, but hope you don't mind a simple question first... All of the functions I'm using that are giving me trouble are, according to the OpenGL online documentation, part of the 1.5 specification:
For instance, see the manal page for glGenBuffers at the bottom where it gives version info:
"glGenBuffers is available only if the GL version is 1.5 or greater."
According to a test program I just ran, the version of OpenGL driver on my system is 2.1.
Same for all the functions above. The documentation states they are available in 1.5. If they required 3.x instead, it'd certainly make sense why they aren't linking. Are the manual pages incorrect, or I'm not understanding something correctly?
