Freeglut 2.8.1 install

Ok so a quick post – have been trying to get freeglut to install under Debian, so I can do some OpenGL work in Perl. However, just couldnt get it to work – it kept complaining that GL/gl.h and GL/glut.h were both missing. Turns out I was missing two extra bits… So to get it to install, I had to do:

sudo aptitude install libgl1-mesa-dev libglu1-mesa-dev

and then could do the make all. Woo!
