Angry Can't get MOTIF to compile with my libraries...

Hello, I am using Red Hat 7.2 and I am trying to write a X/Motif hello world program. I just cant get the program to compile. The source code is correct because I am using an example off the web. However, I can't get it to link to the correct libraries. It can't find the header files that it needs. Please take a look below at my path:

[root@localhost chapter-2]# echo $PATH
[root@localhost chapter-2]#

This is what happens when I compile the program:

[root@localhost chapter-2]# make hello
cc hello.c -o hello
hello.c:5:22: Xm/PushB.h: No such file or directory
make: *** [hello] Error 1
[root@localhost chapter-2]#

The library files for X/Motif are located here and are as follows:
[root@localhost include]# pwd
[root@localhost include]# ls -als
total 40
4 drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 Apr 6 05:11 .
4 drwxr-xr-x 8 root root 4096 Apr 6 04:44 ..
4 drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Apr 6 05:11 DPS

0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 30 Apr 6 05:11 Xm -> ../LessTif/Motif1.2/include/Xm
[root@localhost include]#

Here are my makefiles:
[root@localhost chapter-2]# more Imakefile Makefile.raw
SYS_LIBRARIES = -lXm -lXt -lSM -lICE -lX11


PROGRAMS = hello

INCLUDES = -I/usr/Motif21/include -I/usr/X11R6/include
LIBS= -L/usr/Motif21/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lXm -lXt -lSM -lICE -lX11

all: $(PROGRAMS)

.c: ; $(CC) $(CFLAGS) $(INCLUDES) $@.c $(LIBS) -o $@

-rm -f $(PROGRAMS) *.o

[root@localhost chapter-2]#

So what am I doing wrong? Please, anything would help...

From /usr/X11R6/include do :

file ../LessTif/Motif2.1/include/Dt etc...

because i doubt you have a /usr/X11R6/LessTiff
But most probly a /usr/X11R6/(lib|include)/LessTiff

but to be frack, im getting used to reply to question that i dont know the answer maybe read the README for the LessTiff version needed.
