I've tried removing the config.cache file and recompiling the source but 
the same problem still exist. Could it by any chance the the 
libXpm4.7.tar.gz which I downloaded is actually the wrong version?

I came to this conclusion because after I extracted the files, it 
actually creates a xpm-3.4g directory and the README file states that 
nyone the xpm is actually version 3.0 Does anyone know where I can get 
the latest version of xpm (version 4.0 or higher)?
