You need to read this:

This snippet would look like this:

(ccl:rlet ((matrix-mode :<gl>int))
   (#_glGetIntegerv(#$GL_MATRIX_MODE matrix-mode)
   (#_glMatrixMode (ccl:%get-int-ptr matrix-mode)))

GLUT is a separate framework on OS X.  I haven't done anything with it.  
  I was under the impression that GLUT was somehow related to the aux  
stuff from the red book.  Perhaps I'm wrong?

I haven't gotten anywhere near tackling fonts yet, but if you are using  
Carbon rather than Cocoa, there is this rather nice example (in C):


Text is used in the demo without resorting to GLUT.
