libraries during config phase. The error I get is:

checking for X... disabled
configure: error: GTK+ peers requested but no X library available
configure: error: /bin/sh
1.1.7/libraries/javalib/external/classpath/configure' failed for
 FATAL: oe_runconf failed

NOTE: package kaffeh-native-1.1.7-r3: task do_configure: failed
ERROR: TaskFailed event exception, aborting
NOTE: package kaffeh-native-1.1.7: failed
ERROR: Build of kaffe-gtk failed

In my normal i686 (Ubuntu) env, the xorg-dev package provides me the
libraries required. However I can't seem to find the package that provides
the libs in openmoko/openembedded. Any suggestions on how I can get this to
