gtk+-1.2.10 installation problem

I believe it might be something really small - some path definition or something.
I've successfully installed glib-1.2.10 and now when I run ./configure, it stopps always on the same place.
Glib check >= 1.8 is ok, but after that
checking for X. . . no
configure error
*** X libraries or include files not found. Check 'config.log' for
*** more details.

I have looked into the config.log file and it says a couple thing on the end:
configure:4305: checking for GLIB - version >= 1.2.8
configure:4404: gcc -o conftest -g -O2 -Wall -I/usr/local/include/glib-1.2 -I/usr/local/lib/glib/include -D_REENTRANT conftest.c -L/usr/local/lib -rdynamic -lgmodule -lgthread -lglib -lpthread -ldl 1>&5
configure:4544: checking for X
configure:4611: gcc -E conftest.c >/dev/null 2>conftest.out
configure:4607:27: X11/Intrinsic.h: No such file or directory
configure: failed program was:
#line 4606 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"
#include <X11/Intrinsic.h>
configure:4687: gcc -o conftest -g -O2 -Wall conftest.c -lXt 1>&5
configure: In function `main':
configure:4682: warning: implicit declaration of function `XtMalloc'
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXt
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
configure: failed program was:
#line 4680 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"
int main() {
; return 0; }
I'll welcome any sugestions. . .
Thanks -- Tomas

well install the Xfree86-devel package... not sure why your trying to do this though, what distro are you on? if it's redhat or mandrake you'd be a lot better of just installing the rpms

Thanks I'll do that... My distro is RH8... But I would like to go through the installation process, because I'm learning and I believe that this is one of the best ways to do that... (But I might be wrong as well :-) ).
So Xfree86-devel package should do it... Ok, I see what I can do... If it won't work I'll start searching my CDs :-)...

Thanks again -- Tomas
