[Haskell-cafe] GLUT (glutGet undefined reference)

Hi all,

I was hoping to introduce my old pal OpenGL
with my new chum, Haskell. I used cabal to
install GLUT on my 64-bit Ubuntu machine with
GHC 6.8.2 (installed via apt-get/synaptic).

I followed the wiki OpenGLTutorial1 until:
ghc -package GLUT HelloWorld.hs -o HelloWorld
at which point my screen is filled with errors.
The errors begin with:

/home/paul/.cabal/lib/GLUT- In function `szEn_info':
(.text+0x26c): undefined reference to `glutGet'

This surprised me a little because I've already
seen these same errors recently on two separate
Windows boxes. Somehow I'd got the idea it was
(on Windows) due to installing from a binary; though
I guess the story is the same with apt-get. Should
I look for an apt-get switch to reinstall GHC from
source instead?
