Hmm, I couldn't get the stuff compiled with the installation instructions,
so I had to do it the hard way. Didn't really matter, because I only
needed libGLU, the other libaries are still the same. My system lacked
definitions for GLU_OBJECT_PARAMETRIC_ERROR and the like, so I had to
reconstruct them using fglu.h (sed is your friend ;-).

OK, cool.
