Hi Fern,

it may be worth checking you've got the 32bit versions of libXtst
installed. The Jikes RVM doesn't yet run as a 64bit application on the
Intel x86 64 architecture.

Also, it's not the library itself this check is looking for, but the header files.  In a lot of GNU/Linux distributions, this can mean installing an additional development package (something like libxtst-dev) as these aren't included with the library.  I've run into this a few times, as the libxtst headers are not generally installed as a matter of course.
