This is intentional. Debian Sid does not provide xlibmesa-glu-dev either, and we realigned (mostly) with Debian Sid's packaging at the beginning of the Edgy dev cycle.

$ apt-cache rdepends xlibmesa-glu-dev

shows that no packages depend on xlibmesa-glu-dev directly, and checking

$ apt-cache show freeglut3-dev |grep ^Depends

demonstrates that xlibmesa-glu-dev | libglu-dev is required. libglu1-mesa-dev provides the latter alternate, and indeed freeglut3-dev installs just fine on this current Edgy machine.

Changed in xorg:
status: Unconfirmed → Rejected
