thats a linker error, you need to link glaux.lib into your application.

HOWEVER, the aux library is outdated rubbish, get a better imaging loading library such as
- DevIL
- Corona (C++ style)
- Freelibrary

or even just roll your own if you fancy remaking the wheel....

Well, first of all you have to link with the glaux library (don't know it's name though, because I've never used it). But that's your current problem.
Secondly, I would strongly advise you to either use an existing library or make your own image loader (not hard at all), because glaux has quite a few memory leaks.
