Umm ... don't everybody speak at once.
 
I went over to my customer this morning and tried to compile "freeglut" on an SGI workstation over there.  We read the "INSTALL" file and got started.
 
    - When we ran "./configure", we got an error message:  no "ltmain.sh" file.  We looked all over for one and couldn't find one.
 
    - When we tried simply to "make" in the "freeglut" directory, we got an error message:  missing "aclocal" in the command
        cd . && /c/projects/freeglut/freeglut
The system has no "/c" directory to the best of my knowledge.
 
    - When we tried to "make" in the "freeglut-1.3" directory (the one with all the source code files), we got an error message:
        freeglut_internal.h:88:42    X11/extensions/xf86vmode.h -- no such file or directory
 
My customer was not very impressed.
 
Any ideas?

<snip>

         I need to pause here and let somebody else pick up the ball.  I do not have a Linux machine, so I am unable to test any of my changes on a Linux system.  On the other hand, I have a fairly large GLUT-based application which I am trying to port to "freeglut", and my customer wants it to run on Windows, Linux, and SGI.  And anything else that may come his way as well.  So here is my need:  I need somebody with a Linux box to run the GLUT demos with "freeglut" and make sure they behave the same (or at least similarly) with both windowing systems.  Any help would be appreciated.
