The binary opengl package contains glut.  You should not need to compile
it yourself unless you need to change the glut source code.

Please install the current binary opengl package (version 1.1.0-7) and
read /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/opengl-1.1.0-7.README for usage information.

Don't do that.  Cygwin is not Linux, although it has many similar

IIRC, Cygwin's glut is compiled using MSVC++.
