Although BigNate gave a good solution to your problem, you might want to know what went wrong. The thing is, you are trying to install karamba from source. But to be able to do that, you must have certain file's installed on your system. These are the X11 header files. I you want to compile any graphical appilation in linux, you will need those header files.
But you can also just install every thing with the precompiled binaries. So unless you want somthing that only comes as source, there is no problem.

schatoor is correct, to get those headers usually, you just need to install the package that mentions dev...like xfree86-devel or something ...in other words, the development packages.

(I know mandrake has those on the install CD).

Oops. Thats because you have a wrong version of some library installed. I love linux, but it can be quite a bitch installing stuff.
What version of mandrake do you have?
I worst come the worse, you will ahve to install from source. It's really not that difficult. As tcaptain stated, you will fist have to install a package called somthing like XFree86-devel-<something>.mdk.rpm . It should be on the mandrake cd's. Install that fist. Then Do what you tried to do before, with the "./configure", "make" and "make install"
