Since Xorg 7, Debian (and Ubuntu) have tried to remove all the X11R6
'cruft' from the filesystem... thus, all X header files and libs are
in completely different locations.

For the include directory, try '/usr/include/X11/' (as you suggested)
For the libs directory, try '/usr/lib'

See how you go...
