problems compiling WMBlueMem :S

I tried to compile WMBlueMem that is a dockapp for fluxbox.
WMBlueCPU compiled without errors and is working, but when compiling WMBlueMem it gives me:
[root@slackware] -> (WMBlueMem) make
gcc -O2 -Wall -c main.c -o main.o
gcc -O2 -Wall -c mem_linux.c -o mem_linux.o
gcc -o wmbluemem main.o mem_linux.o -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lX11 -lXext -lXpm -lkvm
/usr/lib/gcc/i486-slackware-linux/3.4.6/../../../../i486-slackware-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lkvm
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [wmbluemem] Error 1
Does anyone know what to do? I've searched for this kvm or whatever but im not finding anything usefull T_T

EDIT: I've searched some more and it seems that libkvm is for *BSD :S
Does anyone know if thats true? But WMBlueCPU runs just fine so it seems strange to me.

EDIT2: After more searching i know what libkvm does. It provides application access to kernel symbols, addresses and values for reading info from the RAM.
