Pidgin can't find X11 development headers

I'm trying to compile the most recent version of pidgin, and all goes well until it tries and finds the X11 Development headers, which I know are installed. There is stuff in /usr/include/X11 anyway. Are the headers installed in a non-standard place?

I've also set CFLAGS=-I/usr/include/X11 and no love :(

And this happens both with GCC and MIPSPro

CFLAGS needs a space between the -l and the leading /

I don't think they do. I've never put a space after the switch, and things work the way they are supposed to. I'll try it anyway. Can't hurt :D

I hacked it. I made a pkg-config file to point to the X11 headers and it works.
