I guess I am using the linux or perhaps Fedora terms here.  Since the
configure script is telling me to intall the devel version.  I know there is
a big discussion on this topic going on now. :)

I rechecked my Xcode installation since I thought I remembered that it
include the X11 SDK.  The normal install didn't give me the option, so I
hunted around and found it in a sub-directory.  I found the X11SDK and
installed it.  I now have my headers.

I think that is why I installed openmotif last time I did this and thought
openmotif was more complete than lesstif.  I found that strange since SuSE
and Fedora use lesstif.
