Yes, forms.h is a 200KB xforms header file that should appear in /usr/local/include/ or similar directory. It may be that your xforms download or install included binaries of xforms libraries but not the headers. On fedora-core you would need to install xforms-devel-1.0.93... as well as xforms-1.0.93... . On Ubuntu, apt searching for xforms brings up XForms, which is a W3C XML format for (eg) web forms, rather than the xforms X Window System GUI package.
I plan to migrate yume2 from xforms to Gtk in the next few months; Gtk seems to be in much wider use on linux systems. You can email me about yume via yume at pat7.com.
