Hmm, do you know that you cannot mix up 64bit and 32bit libraries?

First of all, libglut.la is just an ASCII text file. Its job
is to help the GNU linker (ld) to include all necessary files. 
I created that file myself (manually) - it's not generated by any
script of libglut's sources.

Change the lib-paths and you'll get a '64bit' version of it.
