Making an OpenGL screensaver is about the same as making any other application. The major difference is applications are user driven while screen savers are time driven.

Visit http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/psdk/shellcc/shell/ScrnSave.htm if your writing for Windows.

If you use VC++, I've got an AppWizard that will create the core functions and resources you need for a ScreenSaver. It's a very simple wizard with no options yet, so you'll have to add code to initialize OpenGL yourself. You can get it from http://www.lycanth.com/MiscFiles/scrnapp.zip
