    Fahim,

    your X11 libraries and headers for your LINUX distribution seem to be incomplete.

    Please check the internet (google is your friend!) or the mailing list for your LINUX distribution how to obtain the xaw libraries and headers.

    Sometimes just the headers (in some LINUX distributions available as x11-devel) are missing. You require these now because you are not only using but compiling (i.e. developing) X11 based software.

    Fahim,

      on debian and ubuntu for example,
      you will find the required things in package
        libxaw-dev
