Assuming you use Windows; no, you don't NEED new libraries. In fact, there aren't any newer libraries. Either define your own constands (see spec. for values) and functionpointers (again, see spec. for prototypes), or download glext.h somwhere from SGI (http://oss.sgi.com) (NVIDIA's developer site has a link to it if you can't find it). glext.h defines functionpointers and constants for at least OpenGL 1.2 (and most extensions), but don't know about 1.3. Then load the functions directly from the driver using wglGetProcAddress.
