Thank you all for your suggestions. I had already used the -I option to locate 
header files, and I used absolute not relative path for -L.  I will try them 
out tomorrow, as I had minor fall off my bike on way home for lunch! (May have 
injured shoulder). The guide states that the Xpm library is named libforms??
