Help to cross compile vlc to arm

Hi... I need to cross compile vlc 0.8.1 for an amr platform (an ipaq 5550 whit Familiar Linux distro).

I have found this howto -> <- but I have some problems.
I think this howto is incomplete... because when I have tried to cross compile vlc I have discovered that is necessary to cross compile before gtk+ (in the /ipkg/rules.h3600) that in turn need to cross compile before pango, atk... and other 15-20 packages.
To compile gtk+ then is necessary X11... and here are my problem. I have cross compiled libX11-1.0.3 but seem this is not enough because gtk+ configure don't find my X11 and give me the error:

checking for XOpenDisplay in -lX11... no
configure: error: *** libX11 not found
AT this link -> <- I have found a list of all packages needed to cross compile correctly (I hope)... but I don't be able to found some of this packages (like libX11-6) that I think are necessary.
Can someone help me to find this packages... or explain what's the correct way to cross compile vlc 0.8.1 for Familiar?

You should install libXext and it should go.
If not, please post your config.log
