I think you need to install xlibmesa-gl, xlibmesa-gl-dev, xlibmesa-glu, xlibmesa-glu-dev via apt-get or synaptic.

Most OpenGL tutorials use the GLUT library that provides additions like window managing and input processing. For that, you only need to apt-get install libglut3-dev and compile with the flag -lglut.
