Problem installing ICEWM

Hello - linux newbie here.

Running Fedora 5, and I wanted to try using IceWM instead of gnome.

I searched in vain for an rpm containing icewm for fedora 5 (I found it for previous versions of fedora core, but I assume these wouldn't be appropriate?)

Anyway, so I decided to try a manual install.

I ran ./configure, and it aborted with the following error:
checking for imlib-config... no
configure: error: imlib-config can not be found

I verified that imlib is indeed installed on my computer at /usr/bin, so apparently something isn't set properly?

I even tried specifying the path of imlib_config:
./configure --with-imlib=/usr/bin

Same error.

I'd guess its missing the imlib development package, not the imlib binary.
