While graphics, this doesn’t really have anything to do with OpenGL.
Your error suggests that your linker (ld.exe) cannot locate a library named “libbgi.a” or “libbgi.so” anywhere in your link library search path. You can probably fix this problem by either: 1) telling the linker to look in the directory containing the library by adding a “-L” option (e.g. “-L/some/path -lbgi”), OR instead providing a full path to the library instead of “-lbgi” on the linker line (e.g. “/some/path/libbgi.a”).
So, find libbgi.a or libbgi.so on your system, and then give that path to the linker so it can use it to find that library.
