glut 2.8.0 can't do menus

Looks like the ports version of freeglut can't do menus.

I have:

FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE-p3 #0: Tue Jun 12 02:52:29 UTC 2012     root at

ports updated and freeglut rebuilt today.

As far as I can tell it's this bug:

It has the comment: This is now fixed in r1379.

Could we get the freebsd freeglut 2.8.0 updated as glut menus are
a fairly useful part of glut. I think the fix would require updating
the freeglut src from a later revision since 2.8.0 release, maybe we
should have a freeglut-devel port ?

Happy to help if possible.
