Hello Bruce Dubbs and Fernando de Oliveira,

Bruce, thank you for your help. Adding export LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/X11/lib
worked for me. The build completed without errors. Can I add it
permanently to my environment, or will that have other side effects? Is
it better to only add this, if an when needed?

Fernando, I am executing the tests. They look ok so far, though not yet
