glutMainLoopEvent is Linux-only.

glutCheckLoop is OSX-only.

thus neither exists on Win32.

the GLUT 3 standard does not have anything for that.

much of the point of GLUT is so that GL-application writers have a 
portable layer.

there has to be reasons why Gem/src/Output also contains 
gemcocoawindow.mm, gemglxwindow.cpp, gemmacwindow.cpp and 

thus it's quite simplistic to say "it's not true".
