I got past that now... apparently finally got whatever it was
installed. But now ./configure complains about X libraries:
error: You seem to be running X, but no X development libraries
were found. You should install the relevant development files for
X and for the toolkit you want, such as Gtk+, Lesstif or Motif.
Also make sure you have development files for image handling, i.e.
tiff, gif, jpeg, png and xpm.
Do you know which packages might be needed?
