Ok, at first I show the cross build of freeglut. Here is the packages
configured and build: (log files and .la files included)

I've applied this patch to build it in my cross compiler environment:

and used this wrapper script for configure:

So I configured it with:

./ --without-x

I tried also the parameter --enable-shared=no because I build the
static library only, but this doesn't change anything.

It seems the mingw environment doesn't provide much .la files. Are this
files on Windows not as usefull as on Linux or UNIX?

I hope you could help me. If you need more information or I forgot to
provide any files, than say it.
