I'm rather puzzled where the "fg: no job control" bit is coming
from since there's no invocation of 'fg' anywhere in the
configure script (or at least I haven't found one). And all
I've got at line 13418 is

       sed -e 's/^"%%%"\(.*\)"%%%"/\1/' -e 's/ //g'`

I haven't found any explanation for this and on my system this
doesn't happen with what looks like the same version of libXpm

Since, as far as I can see, the configure script checks for
the version of libXpm available on the system by looking at
the xpm.h header file it might be interesting to compare your
version with the one I have. Could you send me your version of
that file?
                        Best regards, Jens
