I'm no expert in OpenGL or FreeGLUT but when I build GNU st version 3.2.91,
from the source tar.gz from

It seems to use FreeGLUT version 2.8.1 in my case.

My understanding is that FreeGLUT is an open-source implementation of the GLUT 
specification - a collection of useful API wrappers around OpenGL.

Which version of GNU st are you trying to build ? Is it 3.2.91 ?
