file GL/glut.h missing

I get this error while compiling some applications such as FlightGear.I know there was a bug in the code.Where can I find an update on this?I know that glut.h is a widespread file,and it is difficult to find.Is there no way out?

glut.h should be in /usr/include/GL , but that may be a symbolic link pointing to /usr/X11R6/include/GL Have you installed glut?

You probably need glut and glut-devel. Package names may be different in different distributions.
