Winex - error during configure.

Using fredora 1.0, Radeon 9600, mesa drivers.

at command prompt :

PHP Code:
$ ./configure --with---enable-opengl --disable-trace --disable-debug 
I get this error :

PHP Code:
*** WarningX development files not foundWine will be built without
*** X supportwhich currently does not work, and would probably not be
*** what you want anywayYou will need to install devel packages of
*** Xlib/Xfree86 at the very least 
Any ideas on whats going wrong - or where I can find the devel packages of Xlib/Xfree86 ?
