It seems like those two ports dont like each other much.
libglut wont compile if nvidia-driver is installed.

building static glut library
ranlib libglut.a
cc -fpic -DPIC -O2 -pipe -mcpu=pentiumpro -I../include
-I/usr/X11R6/include  -c glut_8x13.c -o glut_8x13.So
ld: cannot find -lGL
*** Error code 1

Stop in /tmp/usr/ports/graphics/libglut/work/Mesa-5.0.2/src-glut.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/graphics/libglut.

As a work-around; you can uninstall nvidia-driver, install(or upgrade)
libglut, and reinstall nvidia-driver.
But if this is a big issue, maybe a fix should be a good thing?
