I'm not totally familiar with dev-c++ compiler messages, but I'm pretty sure it just means you aren't linking your project to glu32.lib
Correct, to link in that .lib file to Dev-CPP you need to add in -lglu32 to the Linker Box in Project->Project Options->Parameters.

With visual c++, when you link something using the project options, it links it only for the application from within the IDE. To make it link the libs to the actual .exe, you need to put a precompiler message in there. But I could be wrong, this is how I understood it. It may or may not apply to your compiler/IDE(Dev C++).
