Hi, I've been compiling aterm, just to try it out.

Having installed the relevant:

- support for XPM graphics ( libXpm )
- and the X header files

I get the following when I type make

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lX11

What is that, a library? Is it a shortened version of the name of a library? I think it should be in some X rpm, but which one?
