There's a GLUT library on the Mesa page now.  It's not part of
MesaLib, but I thought this was the best way to indicate that.  If you
know a better way, let me know.

However, tiff will link to the GLUT library installed in our Mesa
instructions.  I had no intention of building freeglut, but when I was
configuring tiff, there it was, -lglut.
