You need a graphics context to create a FBO.

Create a pbuffer, make current on it and then a viewer setup as a
embedded view as per the osgviewersdl/glut examples then dispatch the
frames required, then cleanup.

See the osgcamera/osgwindows examples to see how to create graphics
contexts using Traits. For pbuffer just set the relevant traits
