I guess that you need to install some package(s), probably related
to software development. (Note: compiling & installing requires packages
for software development, even if you don't develop the stuff yourself.)

In particular, do you have the package xlibs-dev installed? If not,
install that and try the ./configure ; make ; make install combo again.

Good luck.
