Ive followed the steps but suddenly i got these following errors.

Did you install a C compiler?

Did you install a standard C library?

Xaw - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xaw)

- you need to install it,
- you need to get the name correct (do you have libXaw.a)?
- you need to specify the directory (using -L) where libXaw.a can be found.

Remember, case is important. Does it really have a capital letter?
