X include files


I have been trying to compile a package I have and I was faced with the following error while running the configure script:

checking for vsnprintf... yes
checking for snprintf... yes
checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!
[mgreen@0-15-c5-6a-75-b7 kprayertime]$
Where are these X include files? and how may I tell the configure script about them?
I am on a Fedora 8 box.

You need to install libX11-devel using yum.
