OpenGL Performer (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenGL_Performer)? This ancient, commercial scene-graph (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scene_graph) library?

It seems to me that they do entirely different things. FreeGLUT only covers the initialization, maintenance of, and interface to an OpenGL window. Performer is a scene graph, which is all about dealing with rendering objects and such. Neither is "stronger", since they do two different things. Performer may have some kind of window-creation interface, but I didn't investigate it that deeply.
