ld not finding what is there

Hi I have FC4 x86_64 up and working and now I'm trying to install a nerual simulator called genesis. The precompiled binaries don't work so I'm trying to compile the source. Everything works up to a point where I get this from ld:

/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/X11R6/lib/ when searching for -lXt
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/X11R6/lib/libXt.a when searching for -lXt
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXt
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I'm not sure what to think of it. I remember this happening when I was trying to recompile the kernel(for other reasons) and it complained about not finding the Qt libs as well.

Any ideas?

this is an ongoing problem when meshing rpm based systems, with source based packages. but not all is lost. you should be able to instal the newest version of whatever it complains about, and proceed on. note.... i said whatever it complains aobut. this is the first one. there will be more as you find the dependancies. i am skeptical, but should work. just make sur eyou get the newest versions, then ldconfig as root after each install.
