During make gnome-panel-2.6.0 I get cannot find -lXRes


I'm trying to compile and install gnome-panel-2.6.0. I got pas the ./configure but during make I get:

Code:
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXRes
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[5]: *** [wnck-applet] Error 1
make[5]: Leaving directory `/home/pathfinder/Downloads/Gnome/gnome-panel-2.6.0/applets/wncklet'
make[4]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

I can't find anything on IXRes anywhere... Anyone know what this means?

Thanks in advance

Check if you got a file libXRes.a mines located in /usr/X11R6/lib
If not you will have to install it should be on your distro cd

Thanks, that's exactly what I needed. I installed the XFree static devel libraries and now I'm good. I'm curious, how did you know what file i needed?
