You probably just need to make sure your PATH variable includes X (usually at /usr/X11R6/bin). So:
Code:
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/X11R6/bin
Then try running configure again. There is a way to automatically add X to your path each session, but it varies from distro to distro.

Note: please include more information when asking for help. Fill out your distro in your profile, and include versions of important software, like your distro, kernel, and desktop environment. For instance, in this case, the version of Kopete you are installing and the installed version of XFree86 would have been useful.

well either :
a) you need to type something like this :
./configure --x-includes=/usr/X11R6/include
and point to where they are located ... thats an example, but the final command will be very similiar or the exact of what i typed ...
./configure --help
to learn of more arguments ...
or ..
b) you need the x-devel package ...

Check and see if there's a file in your home directory called .bashrc. If there is, check and see if it sets PATH. If it does, add your XFree86 bin path to it after a colon, so that if path was:
Code:
export PATH=/usr/bin
it would not be:
Code:
export PATH=/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin
. If not, just add the export PATH=/usr/X11R6/bin to it. This may not be the "correct" way to do it under SUSE, but it should work.

Make sure you have installed XFree86-devel RPM package.

If you upgrade to SUSE 9.2 Pro Kopete is already configured for you
