[beginner's question] where are the OpenGL libraries and headers?

so I wanted to start compiling/linking an OpenGL program (it's actually the current QT package)
- for compiling I need the OpenGL headers
- for linking I need the static libraries

where can I find any of those?

(the OpenGL standard headers I already downloaded from - but those do not contain any ATI specific extensions)

I am aware of this 'ninja' demo program that demonstrate the use of h/w accelerated OpenGL rendering via 'LoadLibrary/GetProgAddress'
-- this hopefully is only a bad joke!?
-- I need static libraries which I can use at link time to resolve the OpenGL functions!
-- furthermore: this LoadLibrary workaround does not function when compiled in x64 mode (the loaded 'atioglxx.dll' is only available as a 32bit version)
