This sequence is OK, but there is much more of choices, particularly a windowing environment, i.e. making GNU Emacs a graphical application. Try this:

./configure --help

You'll get a huge list. Important is at least '--with-x'. Then you can manually choose the X tool kit, GTK or Lucid, as I recommend (Athena is very old not very attractive, Motif is not my choice, try a bit of 3D look with Xaw-3d). Since the compilation and installation went so fine, you could just try a few combinations to see which suits you best. Pay attention to the supported graphics formats, you might need them one day.
