Freeglut (OpenSourced alternative to OpenGL Utility Toolkit (GLUT))

GLUT was originally written by Mark Kilgard to support the sample programs in
the second edition OpenGL 'RedBook'. Since then, GLUT has been used in a wide
variety of practical applications because it is simple, widely available and
highly portable. GLUT (and hence freeglut) allows the user to create and
manage windows containing OpenGL contexts on a wide range of platforms.

NOTE: This package overwrites and glut.h from the mesa package in
stock Slackware, so be sure to reinstall mesa after removing freeglut.
