It has been a year since I did this last but I seem to recall MacosX
doing some odd stuff.  Digging into some old projects I see things like
gcc -O3 -I/usr/local/include -I/opt/X11/include -L/usr/local/lib -l forms 

If the above does not help then you may need to dig through BSDisms like
this, good luck!
