[visit-users] Help! Build failed due to missing -lXinerama

It seems the build_visit script is assuming it will be able to find
-lXinerama on the cluster on which I am trying to build it. As a result
libqt doesn't build, failing with
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXinerama
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [../lib/libqt.so.3.3.8] Error 1
There is a qt already on the system, so I can try running with that, but
it's a bit crazy. I've built quite a few things parallel, so I think the
configuration is pretty sane. I should maybe note, I'm building this as
a user rather than root.
I have already tried setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH to include /usr/lib64, in
case for some obscure reason it wasn't using it for that reason, but it
should be there.
-bash-3.2$ locate libXinerama.so
Complete build_visit_log attached.
I am going to try switching off building of QT, hoping that there is a
QT3.3 on there already that will work.
