Well I was pretty sure I had made those symlinks but I obviously I was 
wrong, the build has proceeded past the previous points, I've got 
libXm.a and everything. I know I did "ln -s /opt/xorg-7.2 /usr/X11R6" 
because that's mentioned in the installation instructions before the 
Set/unset some variables which affect the build. That link takes you to 
the Creating an X11R6 Compatibility Symlink which shows the third link 
command but not the other two. Maybe they should be mentioned there as well?

Anyway, it looks to be running along happily and I have to go to work. 
I'll post the results this afternoon.

Thanks for all the help on this.
