Well.... you will have to take this with a big grain of salt, because it has
been some while since I did much work with gcc, but it appears to me that
the command line cited...

    is trying to build one of the objects that's probably part of the glut
library itself. The linker complains it can't find -lglut.  '-lglut' tells
the linker to link up with the glut library, found in one of directories
specified with the -L flag. But if it's trying to build that library now,
you shouldn't be trying to link with it.

    So, here's two things to try:

    1) Assuming GLUT.o is actually part of the glut library that's trying to
be built here, find the equivalent line in the makefile and remove '-lglut'.
If it compiles without complaint, things should be OK. If there are lots of
errors about unresolved links, that implies to me GLUT.o is not actually
part of the glut library. Put the -lglut back in and try the next step:

    2) Figure out where the glut library actually lives on your system. (It
appears to be /usr/lib/libglut.so.3.7.1 on my SuSE 8.2 system.) If that
location is not one of the directories already specified with your -L flags,
add it. If it is already in that path, then I guess I don't know what the
problem is.

So... there's a couple of things to try. No promises, but I know I hate it
when I am just simply stuck with nothing left to try.

Good luck.
