1) The Apple website says this about things included in X11: "XFree86 4.3 — Includes latest enhancements from the Open Source community."
Did you install the "X11 for Mac OS X SDK" package too? It's an option when installing the Developer Tools (XCode)

No, and I can't find it on the Apple pages for 10.3 (Panther).

No. I don't have the Developer Tools disk (a long story) and am trying to get one. I'll certainly do that if I can.
You can download the Developer Tools from Apple [1] (free registration required).

The only Developer Tools package I see there is for 10.2, not 10.3. If I missed it please point me to it. I can't find it.

2) My error message still says: "Failed: Can't resolve dependency "gcc3.1" for package "xfree86-4.4.0-14" (no matching packages/versions found)"
Fink asumes that it has to install a xfree86 system, and apparently this package requires gcc3.1. Fink should ask you which version of xfree86 it should install. Do not use the default but select "system-xfree86" which then uses Apple's X11.

Fink gives me a couple of options, but I didn't see system-xfree86 as an option. The options I see are " xfree86: Free X11 implementation for Darwin and Mac OS X" and "xorg: Free X11 implementation for Darwin and Mac OS X" and no others.
If you have Apple's X11 installed, fink should show you the system-xfree86 choice. [2].
Have you run "fink selfupdate" to get the newest fink distribution?
Yes I have run selfupdate. No change. And, I do NOT see the system-xfree86 choice. I suspect I need the SDK package, and therefore the developer tools disk. I think I'm stuck until I get one, though I'll certainly try anything else you might suggest.
