While the software is unfinished, it makes good sense
to allow the user to not overwrite his/her existing
libglut. Probably add a configure flag
(--enable-libglut-replacement or something) to allow
users to use freeglut as a glut replacement, but the
default should be to install to a separate library.

    This is by design -- Freeglut *is* a GLUT replacement.
    Anything we don't implement from GLUT is a failing on our
    part -- and we need to know about it! :)

    --disable-replace-glut is the option that I think he was
    looking for. That feature has been present for a long time.

    While freeglut's goal is to be a binary drop-in replacement,
    in reality it is not there yet. In practice, having a choice
    at compile- or run-time between GLUTs is a benefit.
