Building on Ubuntu 18.10

On Linux and OS-X it is chosen by default unless your
graphics-card/driver is black listed - only happens on Linux. On Windows
there's no OpenGL pipeline (see below) but just D3D. To integrate OpenGL
on win32 you need to do some extra work.

We ( together with some of our customers) are working on
Native-Surface-Support (OpenGL and D3D). We are not yet ready to share
it publicly.

Once we make our first draft implementation available we hope to receive
feedback from the OpenJFX community to improve and move it forward
together in OSS.
