[rosa-devel] Mass migration of packages to 'pkgconfig' BRs

Maybe syncing cooker's freeglut to LTS's maybe beneficial for everyone's
sanity...

This is when it was added to cooker:
https://abf.rosalinux.ru/openmandriva/freeglut/commit/950e0041db06be8b19d1a2bfa85ee86381c679de

Just a suggestion.

Regards,
Matt
