AS you can see from this message, compiler failed to locate XPM library.
Please make sure that you've installed both library and header files that 
comes with it.
If you did, then please remove config.cache and config.status and rerun 
specifying path to your library and includes :

./configure --with-xpm-library=/path/to/library 

For example :

./configure --with-xpm-library=/usr/X11R6/lib 

Please check the output of configure to see if it found XPM library. If no
then check config.log for any errors.
