I tried running configure with --x-include="/usr/X11R6/include" --x-
libraries="/usr/X11R6/lib" (in addition to the flags above) and got
the same error.  I believe XftGlyphExtends is defined in "Xft.h" which
is located in the directory "/usr/X11R6/include/X11/Xft".  Based on
the output below, python looks in "/usr/X11R6/include" but not in this
directory:

When I try setting CFLAGS="-I/usr/X11R6/include/X11/Xft" and re-
running configure, I get the same error message regardless if I tell
python to it to use the 32 bit of 64 bit X-Windows libraries.  How
should I force python to look in this directory?

Thanks a lot -- Yosi
