Hi Sven,

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
