I think I heard the FTGL superceeded GLTT so I just used FTGL. If I 
remember correctly. I am using 32-bit linux now because arrays arn't 
handled well in PD in 64-bit, and I got tired of not being able to use 
One guy offered to fix PD arrays for 64-bit (yes, I know there is no 
"good" solution, but I think that is simply because it would be a larger 
rewrite to make array pointers able to be 32 or 64 bit at build), but I 
would have to buy him a 64-bit machine. I would do that if I had the 
money, but right now I live in the most expensive city in American and I 
do not have a job...

Anyways, I hope that helps.
