[simple? & frustrating] OSX Linker error....

[simple? & frustrating] OSX Linker error....

I am new-ish to programing on a posix system and trying to compile some simple opengl apps that I wrote on a windows system in college a few years ago.  The code is simple and has no OS calls that ogl doesn't handle.   When compiling, I get this:


Basileus:gl project robertcarpenter$ g++ -L /System/Library/Frameworks/GLUT.framework/GLUT -L /System/Library/Frameworks/OpenGL.framework teapot.cpp
ld: in /System/Library/Frameworks/OpenGL.framework, can't map file, errno=22
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I am sure that the OpenGL.framework is the correct location...but it is still quitting on me.  The code works...I put it in an xcode project and it runs fine.  The includes section of my .cpp file is:


#include <stdlib.h>
#include <GLUT/glut.h>

I know I am making progress and am probably right on the edge of nailing it, but I can't seem to figure out this last part.  It doesn't help that nobody writes their osx code outside of xcode, and thus the web is nearly empty.  If you have any tips, I would greatly appreciate it.
