my answer^Wguess is:
your system has not the X header files installed
=> your executable does not support X
please look at the value of Installation-string
[1: open your xemacs,
2: in the *scratch* buffer write "(insert Installation-string)"
3: press RET and C-j]
read what is printed about the "Window System"
if it says what amounts to _"NO X window system"_, you should install
the packages supporting X development and a bunch of other devel
packages (Xaw3d, pnm, jpeg, xpm are the ones that spring to mind,
but i think that you could look at the dependencies that your
distribution lists for the source package install of xemacs)
