All the .h files don't belong to /usr/X11R6/lib/. IIRC on my RedHat 5.1
there were a few (or only 1 ;-)) missing symlink from /usr/include/X11 
to /usr/X11R6/include/X11 configure looks in /usr/include/X11. 
So simply make a symlink:
$ ln -s /usr/X11R6/include/X11 /usr/include/X11

Or at least look into /usr/include if there is a link called X11 to
