Hi Geoff,

I'm not really an expert on how the compiling process works.  It's just
that when I find those kinds of errors, I usually get them to go away
by installing the development packages.  The header files are what's
needed I think, so if they are there it could be that the compiler is
looking in the wrong place.  I switched to Ubuntu a while back and it
took me a few tries to get Sylpheed to compile from sources.
