You don't. The first one is the one that came with GHC, probably. The other
I'm assuming you installed yourself. If you try to remove the first one, I
think GHC will probably break.

If you've installed the OpenGL and GLUT package with --user, any packages that
use them will have to be configured with --user as well.
If you do ghc-pkg list, it will tell you which packages are installed just for
your user, and which are installed globally.
