Compiling C code Under Linuix verses Unix

I am currently running some programs in a SCO UNIX environment and I would like to take the source code and compile it using C for Linuix in a Linuix environment. The main problem I am having is matching some libraries files. The libraries files exist under SCO UNIX but not for Linuix. The two files are: /lib/libx.a and /lib/libm.a. I am using the Linuix gcc compiler. Any information regarding where to find these files or a Linuix C Compiler that may include these libraries would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Do you have the glibc and glibc-devel packages installed on Linux? libm.a comes with glibc and I can find it in /usr/lib. Not sure about libx.a, thogh.

I do have glib installed and I do see libm.a under /usr/lib. Thanks for the reply.
