Thats because the Xpm library is not a standard X11 library. But you should
have no problems compiling it.

X group says to create a link to that file. Also make sure that you specify
sometime during booting a 'ldconfig /usr/local/X11R6/lib' so the shared
libraries are handled correctly.

I know it's possible to specify the screen size to use: -W & -H options.
