Thanks that fixed it for me (now all I have to do is make the makefile
I find the fracturing of packages into runtime and development sometimes
doesn't make any sense. In this case, why is imake and xmkmf supplied in
xbase, but the configuration files they need to run properly in the xdevel
package. Shouldn't they all be in the same place? It would certainly make
using and finding them more straight forward.

Thanks for the help,
