Install the package xorg-x11-devel, this contains the X-includes for your system.

Maybe the package you downloaded is not made for SUSE 9.2
The easiest way to install software that is not on your CD is via direct FTP installation. Have a look here for instructions:

Dependencies should be solved automatically. For additional sources (not supported by the default distribution) have a look in the sticky thread about YaST update sources. But xorg-x11-devel (or xfree86-devel, if you are using this X server) comes from standard sources.
