X11 does seem to be required for R. Although there is a configure
option --without-x or --with-x=no, it doesn't appear to work.

However, you do have X11 on your machine if you have KDE, and you
definitely do want to use X11 in R to get graphics.

 You may not have the X11 header files installed -- they should be
somewhere under /usr/X11 or /usr/include/X11. If the header files aren't
installed then you will need to install them. They will be on your
distribution CD, perhaps in a package called something like x-devel.
