Superkaramba 0.35 CVS tar install

I'm trying to install superkaramba 0.35 from a tar ball....

i have :
run "tar -jxvf superkaramba-cvssnapshot-0.35.tar.bz2"
"cd ./configure"
"make install" under root

but it konks out with this message:

libtool: link: cannot find the library `/usr/X11R6/lib/'
make[2]: *** [superkaramba] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/mark/My Downloads/superkaramba/src'
make[1]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/mark/My Downloads/superkaramba/src'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

i've tried looking for a "libGL" rpm in mandrake installer but there are none to be found, does anyone know what i need to fix the install? also, it would be handy to know how to uninstall the program cleanly too.

If you're installing a program from source the 'clean' way is to have the source and run 'make uninstall'. If you don't have the source and it's not from a package, you need to trace the files and delete them.

I have installed every library containing the words XFree86 including the driver you suggested in Rpmdrake but the make command still comes up with exactly same error.

Any ideas?
