No: GL is typically installed with your video card drivers and glut must be
installed as a separate package. On Linux, package managers handle this
transparently and most people have freeglut installed (there is also openglut
and the original glut). I'm not sure about Mac OS X but I suspect it also
bundles some kind of glut. The last time I looked at Windows it provided only
minimal support for GL and no glut. You can install glut on a Windows box but
you have to do it manually.
