~ 1000: locate xpm.h
locate: warning: database /var/lib/slocate/slocate.db' is more than 8 days old
~ 1001: rpm -q -f /usr/X11R6/include/X11/xpm.h

If you can't find xpm-devel on your distro, then check out rpmfind.net.  
Everything in the world is there.

Try "configure --help".  There is probably some kind of --with-jpeg switch 
that you can use to tell it that you really know what you're doing.
