Hi Anselm,

Thanks for the response.

Everything seems to working now ...

I reviewed and noticed the following section:
# Xinerama, un-comment if you want it
XINERAMALIBS = -L${X11LIB} -lXinerama

I commented these lines out and plain vanilla dwm compiled, with these warnings
dwm.c: In function ‘updategeom’:
dwm.c:1686: warning: unused variable ‘nn’
but all works well.

Note that aptitude shows that packages libxinerama-dev and
x11proto-xinerama-dev were installed automatically on my Unbuntu

Perhaps the lines referenced above in should be commented
out by default, as the comment preceding them seems to imply.

Thanks again for your help!
