I don't really have much knowledge of Debian, and allanon would be a more
knowledgeble person to comment on this one, but from the errors you posted
it looks like you do not have some X header files installed, or they are
in some non-standard location (default is /usr/X11R6/include as you may gather
errors ). I presume that Debian does the same thing as RedHat - wich is
development and standard libraries into two different packages. Please check
with Debian docs in what package you have development headers and libraries for
and make sure you have these packages installed.
