Post Problem configuring Window Maker

I get this error when ./configure is run. It configures fine for a minute and then when it searches for X it spits this out:
configure: error: The path for the X11 files not found!
Make sure you have X and it's headers and libraries (the -devel packages
in Linux) installed.
I JUST re-installed redhat and I've checked out everything and it looked okay, I don't know where to start looking to fix this problem

Look for an RPM on your installataion discs that should be something like:

xfree86-devel or xfree86-headers

and install it.
