But that is not the best fix, and this have been discussed several times
in the R-help/R-devel lists. A better fix is already in R-patched, whose

INSTALLATION ISSUES

    o src/modules/X11/dataentry.c would not build on some XFree
        4.4.0 systems. (This is a bug in their header files but we have
        added a workaround.)

Please do send in bug reports to your distributions, as there is a bug in
their distributions, not R's.
