I ran into this issue using on a freshly installed raspbian "stretch" on my Pi3, using the raspberry pi-specific "control window opacity" example:
http://www.geeks3d.com/hacklab/20151207/how-to-control-the-window-opacity-on-the-raspberry-pi/

Darin's advice was correct.
I found the libbrcm*.so libraries in /opt/vc/lib/
and just symbolic linked them within GeeXLab's "dylibs" folder

which means I basically cd'd into dylibs, and ran:
ln -s /opt/vc/lib/libbrcmGLESv2.so  libGLESv2.so
ln -s /opt/vc/lib/libbrcmEGL.so  libEGL.so

(i might've also done the same for libbrcmWFC.so and libbrcmOpenVG.so, but I don't think those were needed here)

  • Added support for the following GPUs:
    • GeForce GTX 1060 5GB
      Quadro P620
  • Fixed a regression introduced in 390.12 that prevented displays from working normally when running multiple X screens with emulated overlays.
  • Fixed a regression introduced in 390.12 that caused occasional hangs and hard lockup messages in the system log when screen transformations are in use.
  • Added new application profile settings, "EGLVisibleDGPUDevices" and "EGLVisibleTegraDevices", to control which discrete and Tegra GPU devices, respectively, may be enumerated by EGL. See the "Application Profiles" appendix of the driver README for more details.
  • Corrected the SONAME of the copy of the libnvidia-egl-wayland library included in the .run installer package to libnvidia-egl-wayland.so.1. The SONAME had previously been versioned incorrectly with the full version number of the library.
  • Updated nvidia.ko to veto the ACPI_VIDEO_NOTIFY_PROBE event on kernels that allow the handler for this event to be overridden, to improve interaction between the NVIDIA driver and acpi_video on display hotplug events.
  • Updated the SLI Mosaic layout page in the nvidia-settings control panel to support topologies with up to 32 displays.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented Xinerama Info from being handled properly in SLI or Base Mosaic layouts with more than 24 displays.
  • Updated the X driver's composition pipeline (used for rotation, warp and blend, transformation matrices, etc) to also support stereo.
  • Added an OpenGL stereo preview feature to the screen page in nvidia-settings.
  • Fixed a bug where GetTexSubImage() would read incorrect data into a pixel buffer object when supplied with a target of GL_TEXTURE_1D_ARRAY and a non-zero yoffset value.
  • Added support for generic active stereo with in-band DisplayPort signaling. The X configuration option "InbandStereoSignaling" is deprecated in favor of this stereo mode. See "Appendix B. X Config Options" in the README for more information.
  • Modified the driver to avoid restoring framebuffer console modes on virtual reality head-mounted displays.
  • Fixed a bug which could cause X servers that export a Video Driver ABI earlier than 0.8 to crash when running X11 applications which call XRenderAddTraps().
