Question X development files


I'm not new to linux, but I'm no expert. I'm trying to compile gplflash on my ibook with FC5. I have all the development packages installed. When I go into the term and do ./configure as root, everything goes well until it finally says that it can't find the X11 development files. FC5 says that they're installed, so what's up?

Thanks in advance for any help in this!

Here's a complete copy of the terminal running ./configure:

you double checked your package manager and you have the development/source packages installed? were they installed to a non-default directory? try running './configure --help' to see more options or read the INSTALL/README file that should have came with this program to see if you can specify where they are installed.
