Oh well!  From what I can tell, glut seems to be a kind of OpenGL-specific 
graphics-only SDL alternative.  The only programs I have access to, are those 
two games, the KDE OpenGL screensaver, the xscreensaver one's, and 
kpovmodeler.  Other then that, does it do weird things to glxgears? (it does 
not for me)

 I did not previously have libglut installed - so I'm not sure that xscreensaver or glxgears will try to use it.  Perhaps I should rebuild xscreensaver or x11?
