Hello Kosuke,

I'm unfamiliar with that particular release of SuSE (unless
that's a compiler version :-)

As the error suggests, it can't find the file libXpm.so. Under later
SuSE releases you will need to:

  a) Install the xorg-x11-devel RPM
  b) "make clean" in EMBOSS
  c) configure EMBOSS again
