When I type "make", there is a long list of error message. This is an
example of them (the others are just like this one):

gcc -c -O -I../FORMS -Ifd scrollbar.c
gcc -O -s scrollbar.o -o scrollbar -L../FORMS -ldforms -lXpm -lX11 -lm
ld: can't opne -lXpm: no such file or directory

It seems to me that the compiler could not find Xpm. I searched *Xpm*
through the /usr directory, and here is the result:


Also the files related to xpm* in /usr are:


What is the difference between xpm and Xpm? Should I somehow change
something in mkconfig.h (for example, SYSLIB, LDFLAG, etc.)??? Could
anybody please help?

Many thanks,
