	In addition to all of Sasha's information (not in this post), I
have the following observations from the above statement:

	It appears to me that you don't have any image handling libraries
or headers, nor the xli background image setting program (which Sasha
pointed out as the fallback).  I'd go back to the ./configure step (first
rm'g the config.cache file) and *watching* the output, noting if it finds
the image libraries.  You won't be having any images if it doesn't find
the headers and libraries to build them. :)
	The minimum lib would be libXpm (capitalization could vary), and
the version was stated in Sasha's post (3.4 I think).
