I noticed this myself.  The problem is, I don't know where to get
GLUT-2.1.1.  If I look on Hackage [1] and select GLUT from the
Graphics category, I am directed to GLUT-2.0.

Clearly, I'm missing something here.  Where do I have to go to get the
latest version of GLUT?

Also, after I built freeglut with VS-2003, I copied the include files,
the lib file, and the dll to the correct places (relative to VS-2003)
and I could successfully compile the examples that came with freeglut.
MinGW/MSYS doesn't know about VS-2003 include directories, so where am
I supposed to put the freeglut include and lib files relative to

Thank you
