Since the gcc command line does contain the flag "-I/usr/X11R6/include", 
this error message seems to say that you do not have the file
/usr/X11R6/include/X11/Xlib.h, nor the other 3 *.h files. If this is the 
case, your X11 installation is incomplete.

I see 2 possibilities for this to arrive:

1. You somehow managed not to install the X11SDK.pkg from the xcode 
tools installation, although on Leopard this is now standard, and the 
macosforge/xquartz update packages install its content, too, or

2. you do have /usr/X11/include/X11/Xlib.h, but the symlink
/usr/X11R6 -> X11 got destroyed by the installation of libXaw3d.

Please look at the output of

ls -l /usr/X11R6
ls -l /usr/X11/include/X11/Xlib.h
ls -l /usr/X11R6/include/X11/Xlib.h

The first should show the symlink, and the last two should show the same
