GLU32 status & update

After investigating bug #783 (Wine20020605: Problems with build of
dlls/glu32), here are my conclusions so far (not finished yet, but I
need a bit of advice on next direction to pursue):

First, we need to not compile glu32 is no is found. The test
for libGLU is already in configure, the only thing missing is some logic
in the dlls/Makefile (or maybe dlls/glu32/Makefile?) to not build it.

Next, the version of the GLU implementation of MS is 1.2. That's fine as
long as the same (or more recent) version is found while building. I'm
currently using Mesa 3.4.2 on RH 7.2, which is GLU 1.1 compliant. The
GL/glu.h has the defines for 1.2 and 1.3, but the lib/ doesn't
have any implementation. Some more recent distributions (eg, RH 7.3) has
the SGI GLU implementation which is 1.3. So we need to check this also.
What would be the best thing to do if the native GLU is < 1.2? Not build
dlls/glu32 at all? There's a way to map 1.1 call to 1.2 or beyond, but
not the other way around (or I'm not aware of it).

I finished correcting the prototypes (compliant with MSDN) in glu.c for
a native GLU 1.2. Now I'd like to have some input as to what to do wrt a
native GLU 1.1.

If you have some advice, I'll appreciate them.
