Brandon wrote an excellent answer on 17 Sep, which is in the list archives.
Briefly, to quote him:
+ In the meantime, users are going to have play games behind the back of
  the packaging system to satisfy any program that requires libGLU:

  - retrieve the appropriate mesag3 .deb package for your architecture
  - put it in a subdirectory of /tmp (not /tmp itself)
  - dpkg-deb -x mesag3-glide2_3.2.1-1_i386.deb .
    (or whatever the .deb is named)
  - become root, and return to this directory if necessary
  - cd usr/lib
  - as root, cp *libGLU* /usr/lib
This works for me.
