I'm getting the following error when trying to complete the 'make' step:

cd libmyth && make -f Makefile
make[2]: Entering directory `/root/myth/mythtv-0.7/libs/libmyth'
rm -f libmyth-0.7.so.0.7.0 libmyth-0.7.so libmyth-0.7.so.0

-lqt-mt -lpthread -lXext -lX11 -lm
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXext
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [libmyth-0.7.so.0.7.0] Error 1

make[1]: *** [sub-libmyth] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/myth/mythtv-0.7/libs'
make: *** [sub-libs] Error 2

I need some help. If I 'locate' Xext, it finds 
/usr/X11R6/lib/libXext.so.6 (soft
link) and /usr/X11R6/lib/libXext.so.6.4. /etc/ld.so.conf shows 
/usr/X11R6/lib as
a path. Help. I don't want my wife and kids to think I'm not that much of
geek after all..
