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?
