Problem with XServer installing KDE themes

I'd like to customize my KDE,so i tried to install a theme from, but the following problem appears:
When i type either the "./configure" command or the "./configure
--prefix=PREFIX",as the README file instructs me to do (where PREFIX the path, where themes are to be installed) a configure process begins, but suddenly ends, showing me the following message:
"checking for X... configure: error: can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths."
I am using Redhat 9 with KDE 3.1 and a Radeon 7500, if this helps.
Thanks in advance.

You need to install the development package(s), probably called something along the lines of XFree86-devel-version. These packages are available on your installation CD's or on your local Redhat mirror.
