Dear Joe,

David is right in that you do not have the X11 development libraries. I
see you're using RHEL5. I've not used this yet, but I assume it's quite
similar to RHEL4. On this basis, you can use the up2date tool (as root)
to automagically install all the required RPMS to satisfy AMBER's build

 up2date -i xorg-x11-devel xorg-x11-libs byacc gcc-gfortran gcc-c++ cpp

Remember, you need to ensure up2date is working before you execute the
above. It is possible that the package names in RHEL5 have changed a
little, hence the above may not be totally correct. If this is so, get
back to me so that the problem can be debugged further.
