[Haskell-cafe] Linker Errors For OpenGL / GLUT 'Hello World' Program.

Hello Brandon and Haskell-cafe,

(Sorry for the delayed reply...)
These seem to be the relevant lines from "configure" of OpenGL package.

checking GL/gl.h usability... yes
checking GL/gl.h presence... yes
checking for GL/gl.h... yes
checking OpenGL/gl.h usability... no
checking OpenGL/gl.h presence... no
checking for OpenGL/gl.h... no
checking GL/glu.h usability... yes
checking GL/glu.h presence... yes
checking for GL/glu.h... yes
checking OpenGL/glu.h usability... no
checking OpenGL/glu.h presence... no
checking for OpenGL/glu.h... no

That looks like to me that the gl.h and glu.h header files were found and
are usable (in some cases).  I am able to build and install OpenGL and GLUT
packages for Haskell, but many errors occur as seen below during linking.  I
still can't seem to figure out what is causing these linker errors...
Any other ideas?  :/

Thank you.
