For STL you can look at this thread
Newbie in opengl under linux platform face the difficulty in compiling the c++ code and linking the libraries like GLUT, GL, GLU. The best way to avoid the problem is to create a make file which can compile any GCC c++ source file and produce the output file.
The code for make file is
CC = gcc GCCFLAGS = -O INCLUDE = -I. -I/usr/include FILENAME = zbuffer LDLIBS = -lglut -lXext -lX11 -lXmu -lXi -lGL -lGLU -lm -lSDL -lSDL_mixer LDFLAGS = -L/usr/X11R6/lib -L/usr/lib -L/lib program: $(CC) $(GCCFLAGS) $(INCLUDE) $(FILENAME).cpp $(LDFLAGS) $(LDLIBS) -o $(FILENAME)
