Instalation and D'd problem.

     I?ve found 2 problems with EMBOSS. I?ve installed this in the past under 
     Solaris 7 (Sun) and several flavors of Linux.
     Now I?m trying to compile it under Red Hat 6.2 server. The configure 
     stage goes by OK, but when I try to compile I get:
     -DVERSION=\"2.4.1\" -D
      -I. -
     I. -I../nucleus -I../ajax -I../plplot  -I/usr/local -DNO_AUTH  -g -O2 -c 
     `test -
     f 'abiview.c' || echo './'`abiview.c
     /bin/sh ../libtool --mode=link gcc  -g -O2   -o abiview  abiview.o 
     ../nucleus/li ../ajax/ ../ajax/ ../plplot/ 
     mkdir .libs
     gcc -g -O2 -o .libs/abiview abiview.o  ../nucleus/.libs/ 
     ibs/ ../ajax/.libs/ ../plplot/.libs/ 
     -lX11 -lm
     -Wl,--rpath -Wl,/usr/local/lib
     /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lX11
     collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
     make[2]: *** [abiview] Error 1
     make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/sbassi/EMBOSS-2.4.1/emboss'
     make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
     make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/sbassi/EMBOSS-2.4.1/emboss'

     Perhaps it?s something related to graphics, since is a server machine, X 
     is not installed. Is X needed in order to compile it? I really need to 
     use only text based programs from EMBOSS.
     If there?s a program witch needs X, I would like not to compile it but 
     keep on working with the command line (CL) ones.
     Now, it seems that I can?t compile even CL programs because I don?t have 
     X installed. Maybe I?m wrong.
     I also reporting that EMNU program is not where the EMBASSY web page 
     states it is:
