To subscribers of the xforms list from Mike Blackwell <> :

You need to include "-lm" on your link line to link in the
math library (pow() is a math function).

You may have trouble mixing Xforms and GLUT, since both want
control of the event loop. In the past I've hacked the GLUT
source to make it work, but it wasn't a great solution and
we had some mysterious X state problems we never solved. It's
much easier to use an Xforms GL canvas and control the rendering
