Its likely that your Linux distribution doesn't add the path 
/usr/X11R6/lib to your /etc/ld.so.conf file or the global library paths 
by default, the other apps and libs you mention probably take measures 
to add the -L/usr/X11R6/lib flag in order to include it durring link 
time. Fedora doesn't present this problem, I think (but I am not sure) 
Debian doesn't either, so you must be using some other distro. :)

Regarding HAVE_STDLIB_H, you are probably getting an "already defined" 
warning right? if so, you can manually change

#define HAVE_STDLIB_H 1


#define HAVE_STDLIB_H 1

On both headers to avoid the collision.
