is there an addon to opengl around which provides the ease of use and portability of glut, ie most platforms, specfically windows and linux
but in which the addon does not take control of the program loop as glut does with glutMainLoop()
?

You might want to try GLFW

One very good replacement for GLUT is the SDL lidrary. (Sound Device library)
It not only supports video setup, but also sound playback (WAV, MOD, ETC), keyboard, joystick.
Also SDL is crossplatform, windows, linux and mac.
