Actually no. This is a bug in the 3.08.3 tarball, due to a bug in
recent versions of gcc (?) which cause the .depend of
the graph subdirectory to wrongly depend on the X11 installation.
The fix is to adapt dependencies to your installation:
  $ cd otherlibs/graph
  $ make depend

You can also configure with the -no-x11 option.
This will disable both the graph and labl/camltk libraries.
Not too good if you are a developper, but if this is not your case no
problem.
