Sorry to hear about your hour that disappeared (snicker).  I've been 
working on gnome-libs for three weeks now.

I'm not sure why you're trying to compile 1.0.55, when 1.2.11 is the
latest stable release, as of January 31, 2001, but that's neither
here nor there.

When I configure 1.2.11, I see the following:

   configure:2689: checking for XpmFreeXpmImage in -lXpm
   configure:2708: gcc -o conftest -g -O2 -Wall -Wunused  -I/usr/local/BerkeleyDB/i
   nclude -I/usr/local/lib/glib/include -I/usr/local/include -I/usr/X/include -L/us
   r/local/BerkeleyDB/lib -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/X/lib -lgtk -lgdk -lgmodule -lgli
   b -lXext -lX11 -lsocket -lm conftest.c -lXpm  -lsocket -lnsl -pthread 1>&5

>From my limited knowledge, I think that -lXpm would need to find it's header file,
or the configure statement would fail.

Do you concur?

Be well,
