I am currently sitting in front of a Windows machine but I built R on my   laptop at home running Ubuntu 8.04. So hopefully, I don't make a mistake. What I guess you have to do, is to install the

xorg-dev

package.
You could do this by:
sudo apt-get install xorg-dev
in a terminal window.

And then you can start again with ./configure and so on.

Does this help?
