It appears that something of your Mesa library is missing (possibly you
installed only the library but not the include files, but I am not
familiar enough with RedHat to properly judge this). On my machine
(SuSE 6.3), glut.h exists and is required for compilation of Molscript
(I compiled 2.0.1, and the OpenGL support works).

~% locate glut.h
~% rpm -qf /usr/include/GL/glut.h
