The package manager suggestions are very unlikely to be exactly right
for all versions of all distributions. You can follow the error message
to get better results and install the files it is complaining about.

For example, using yum, you can ask to install the package that provides
this file (eg XTest.h) by name:

# yum install '*/XTest.h'

You should do the same for all other header file dependencies configure
complains about.

If you are on Fedora 19, you can also get all the dependencies faster by
getting all the dependencies that java-1.8.0-openjdk (that's what the
OpenJDK 8 package is called in Fedora) declares:

# yum-builddep java-1.8.0-openjdk

This may not be as up-to-date as what configure expects, though. It
should be faster.
