Zach, thanks for your report!

Without a configure stage in the build process, we are basically stuck with
hard-wired paths.  That said, the attached patch should work for generic linux
distros.  It appeals to the search paths which the linker follows by default in
addition to /usr/X11R6/lib.

I built a fresh checkout with this patch against slackware 11, which does have
libXpm.a, and all is well (so no backwards breakage, AFAICT).

Tim, could you consider this patch in your next build/test cycle?
