Fedora : The run time libraries are installed by default.

To get all the files :
1) su
2) yum install mesa-libGL-devel mesa-libGLU-devel \
mesa-libGLw-devel mesa-libOSMesa-devel

.. and may be : yum install opengl-games-utils

Or use "Add / Remove Software" , the package manager
instead of # yum.
.....
EDIT : Ref. # 4, @Elv13 : # yum install freeglut-devel
.....

I would also recommand to install GLUT, it provide access to OpenGL and some other useful functions.
