from the README:

Quote:
Requirements
------------
In order to build wmii you need the Xlib header files and libixp. xmessage
and dmenu are used by the default scripts. libixp and dmenu can be obtained
from http://suckless.org/. Either plan9port[2] or 9base is recommended.

From http://slackbuilds.org/repository/13.0/desktop/wmii/ : "This requires libixp, plan9port, and dmenu". Please read the requirements first, before trying to build software from the site.

All of those requirements have SlackBuild scripts at http://slackbuilds.org/ as well.
