1. XPM, pixmap, and other problems

        I'm having a few troubles with various X stuff.

XPM 3.4: I can't get this to compile, it errors out on data.o with error
126. What's that? I can install the stuff under the R6 dir that came with
it, but apparently this isn't everything.

Pixmap: y'know, the editor. It can't find the xpm headers (see above) when
I try to compile it. I tried taking the ones out of the src dir in XPM,
but apparently that ain't gonna work :(

        If someone has a spare clue to give to a bonehead like me about
this whole XPM thing, I'd really appreciate it.

        The last problem I'm having is a general one, dealing with
linking. On _some_ programs, when gcc does -lX11 it can't find it. Why?
What's it looking for, and how do I tell it where to go? On some stuff,
no problem, on others, no way. *shrug* Any help here gratefully recieved
as well.
