This doesn't sound right.  To create the link, do:

cd /usr
ln -s X11R6 X11

It sounds like you have both /usr/X11R6 and /usr/X11 already, though?  If 
so, and both of them are real directories instead of symbolic links, then 
one of them should be removed, probably /usr/X11.  For now, until you 
have things sorted out, just:

cd /usr
mv X11 X11_old
ln -s X11R6 X11

Hopefully you meant include.  It shouldn't be looking in X11/lib for 
header files. :)

To spool make errors to a file under bash, I use:

make > make_log 2>&1
