It's better to create environment variables like CFLAGS or CPPFLAGS  
that contain an element like -I/usr/X11/include. You could also  
simply invoke:

	env CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/X11/include ./configure ...

An improved strategy is to report this to the author(s) or maintainer 
(s) telling that on Mac OS X X11 and OpenGL C header files can be  
found in /usr/X11/include or in /usr/X11R6/include (before Leopard)  
that the configure script finds the C header files after next update.

Creating that /usr/local/include sym-link can introduce problems like  
C header files installed in /usr/X11/include, possibly overwriting  
existing ones ...
