Hey great, thanks for that!  You didn't have to do that :-)  I tried your
changes and did indeed get further.  I also had to hack the Makefile.config
(in the x11 dir) to include /usr/local/lib and /usr/local/include.  Also, a
few of the Makefiles had carriage returns at the end of every line, and that
also caused gmake to bork.  Oh, I had to change configure in one other spot too
to include /usr/local/include.

After that it compiled everything!

Did all that happen because they were using an older version of autoconf to
create the configure script?

Yeah I think I'll email them, though I'm a newbie when it comes to autoconf/
automake.  I'm about to teach myself though because (a) it's about time I
learnt and (2) I need to learn to package up some software I'm working on. :-)

Thanks muchly for your help!
