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
