You most likely need to install the X development packages.  If RH9 is 
similar to Fedora Core, you ought to be able to go to add applications 
and from somewhere in the red hat menu and find the X development stuff 
somewhere.  Otherwise if you use yum or apt-get, you ought to be able to 
   search for x11-devel or something like that.
