These files are include files for the X11 window system.  They are
usually found in /usr/include/X11/ or /usr/X11R6/include.  Try the
locate command, as in 
 bash-2.01$ locate Xlib.h
to determine where they are.  The ./configure script should be able to
determine the location of these automatically.  Since it didn't this
may mean that your C compiler needs to be tweaked.

There are two options to ./configure
  --x-includes=DIR        X include files are in DIR
  --x-libraries=DIR       X library files are in DIR
that you can use to set /usr/X11R6/include and /usr/X11R6/lib on the
include path and the libraries path respectively. It is unusual to
need to use them.

They are available on the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN) sites
in the src/contrib section.  The primary CRAN site is
