 Freeglut 2.4.0 fails to compile on LFS 6.5. The problem lies in the fact
 that Freeglut uses -pedantic, and this causes GCC 4.4.x to complain about
 the non-C90 use of 'long long' in Xmd.h from Xorg. We can bypass it at
 configure time with the use of --disable-warnings. However, if Freeglut
 used -pedantic then they clearly intended for this issue to be addressed.
 Either a patch or a bypass is in order.
