Problems installing IMWheel

I'm trying to install IMWheel to get the 'history' buttons on my mouse to work. When I run ./configure I get two warnings:

checking for XCreateWindow in -lX11... no
configure: WARNING: IMWheel depends on the X11 libraries!
checking for XestAddDisplay in -lXest... no
checking for XtFree in -lXt... no
checking for XmuInternAtom in -lXmu... no
checking for XTestFakeDeviceKeyEvent... no
configure: WARNING: IMWheel depends on the XTest extention!

The installation text says that IMWheel uses XFree86 3.3.2 or higher (but not 4.0.0) and X11 libraries and include files. So, what do I need and where can I find them? Thanks for the help.

david@cyberman:~/> dpkg -S /usr/X11R6/include/X11/extensions/XTest.h
xlibs-dev: /usr/X11R6/include/X11/extensions/XTest.h
Install the xlibs-dev package, or its equilivent on your distro

I checked the Mandrake site and googled around on the web but could only find the xlibs-dev package for Debian. Anyone have an idea where I could find a Mandrake package or a more generic one?

BTW - thanks for the help.
