I hope it's ok for me to plug this here: take a look at GLEW,
http://glew.sf.net/, a library that eases the use of OpenGL extensions.
Disclaimer: I'm one of the authors of that library. It includes
support for currently available OpenGL extensions, with a couple of
exceptions (SGI extensions to GLX, IIRC). It's very easy to use, very
portable, and we have paid attention to portability. It works on
Windows, Linux, MacOS and IRIX.
