I followed the instructions in the README and tried building on a new, 
blank ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS system. configure was able to detect that cups, 
asound & freetype libs were not installed, and provided helpful 
instructions to get them, but it failed to catch that X libraries were 
not installed - I had to install them 'manually' -

sudo apt-get install libx11-dev libxext-dev libxt-dev libxrender-dev 

Might want to update configure to check for these libs on linux.
