GLUT's build has a configure script. When that script says: "libGLUT...
yes/no" its not actually looking just for libGLUT, but for various other
libs such as libXmu. Additionally, when it fails to find these other
libraries, and gets a "no", it still finishes the configure and build
"successfully", but without the proper -l flags in the package
description. This results in linkage failures of GLUT programs later.
In my opinion the fix should include:
A. Look for libXmu and any other such library in a separate configure
item, so its clear what's missing.
B. Failure to find necessary libraries should fail the
configure/build/install, and not continue as if successful, only to fail
