Please send the full transcript of the failed configure run (the one 
without the --x-includes and --x-libraries options), and also the file 
config.log created when it runs.

This indicates that the configure script thinks your library doesn't have 
the strerror function.  I'd be surprised if that were true for a 
GNU/Linux system.  The file config.log should show why the test for 
strerror failed.

(IIRC, you posted an identical report to gnu.emacs.help, and I replied 
with almost identical questions there.)
