No ... you shouldn't have to switch to another GLUT variant to enable AA.  First you have to tell me what "enable AA" means ... then I have to go to the code and figure out how to do it ... then we put it into "freeglut".

I do not see any effect when passing GLUT_MULTISAMPLE to the
glutInitDisplayMode() function.
If I use nvidia_settings, and force the AA, the multisample does work.

Inspecting the freeglut source code revealed that GLUT_MULTISAMPLE is actually ignored.
The bit is set in the state variable, but it is never used.

Do I need to switch to another glut variant if I want to enable AA?

glxinfo shows that I have support for:
