it is looking for libX11.so  (the option -l@@@ means look for lib@@@.so) It 
is generally provided by the devel-package of the package which provided 

In your case the XFree86-devel package must be installed (assuming you are 
using XFree86). If you don't want to install the devel-package, creating a 
symlink libX11.so -> libX11.so.x.y will mostly work.
