ld.so.conf is for the dynamic linker. You need to get -L paths to the
linker somehow. freeglut isn't helping you out by trying to figure out
where X is installed using pkg-config. They're also not really
following the use of AC_PATH_XTRA from autoconf where you could use
--with-x-libraries=/opt/xorg/lib. Probably you just need to run with
LDFLAGS="-L/opt/xorg/lib" for this package.
