[branden@deadbeast.net: [bequw@stanford.edu: future of xlibs question]]

Brian, please do not bother Branden directly, he gets too much of that
already. BTW, what happened to "I obey."? [Branden, perhaps you should
change it to require, "I promise I will not email Branden, so help me
God". :]

To answer your direct question, GLU will be supported once upstream
supports it. It is currently the only C++ file in the whole
distribution, and they are trying to find some nice way for it to be
handled in their current build system for all their platforms. I don't
envy them their work.

Until that time, a work-around has been posted to this list, check the
archives if you need libGLU support Right Away.

Dear Branden,
	I'm a debian user who uses your xlib packages and wanted to know 
if they will support GLU anytime soon?  Thanks for the packages they
work great otherwise.
Brian Quistorff
