  Yes: IRIX 4.0.x and later uses the Distributed Graphics Library (DGL)
  to allow GL programs to run remotely.  Applications running over
  DGL use the DISPLAY environment variable just as do ordinary X 
  applications.

  OpenGL applications also will pay attention to the DISPLAY variable.
  OpenGL data, however, does not use DGL; it uses the standard X
  communications mechanism.
