Don't. Just do not use GLUT in any way or shape.
It is very, very old. AFAIR the latest pre-compiled binary distributions were for Windows 95 and NT. Of course there is no official Windows 64 support as GLUT is dead and rotten.
Use OpenGLControl for context managment in Lazarus and get rid of GLUT. If you absolutely must use GLUT (although I cannot think of any viable reason) use freeglut as it is at least maintained.
