Odd. The log suggests that the same version of libtiff-dev is installed as
the one I use, and Xm/Xm.h is in /usr/X11R6/include.
I found the full build log on the web, and I see this bit:
checking for X... libraries /usr/X11R6/lib, headers
whereas, on my i386, I get
checking for X... libraries /usr/X11R6/lib, headers /usr/X11R6/include
So, the question becomes: why does the configuration on m68k not
require -I/usr/X11R6/include to find the other X headers?

Most of the packages does NOT require xforms. The bits that do
require it are currently unbuilt. So it resides in main.
It looks like if I want to make a second "contrib" .deb, I need
to manufacture a second source package. Ugh.
