make xconfig fails
I'm trying to run the kernel's make xconfig and I'm getting the error "/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXi". Googling this message turns up the hint that the linker is looking for a static library, libXi.a. In /usr/lib I have shared libraries libXi.so.6 and libXi.so.6.0.0 but no libXi.a.
I'm running Fedora 8 and trying to configure a 2.6.20 kernel. Now here's the kicker. I have another virtually identical Fedora 8 system that happens to be running under VMware. make xconfig works on that one and it doesn't have a libXi.a either.
