Yes, the development headers for X11.

If you use YUM, do the following in a shell:

su -c "yum install xorg-x11-devel"

Enter your root password and it will download and install the relevant headers.

As an aside, are you aware of Martyn Plummer's R rpm binary? You can get it from here: http://www.stats.bris.ac.uk/R/bin/linux/redhat/fc4/
