You should not have to modify any files by hand like this.

What port provides /opt/local/include/GLUT/glut.h? I don't have this

port provides /opt/local/include/GLUT/glut.h

The include flags in the port must be wrong... should include $ 
{x11prefix}... You may need to file a ticket for this problem.
