xboard is part of the Fedora Extras package collection for Fedora Core
6. Therefore, you don't need to compile the program yourself, but
rather do

yum install xboard

as root user, assuming you have the Fedora Extras repository activated.

Please note that this list is for questions about fedora development,
and not user problems such as the one you posted. Those sorts of
questions should be asked on fedora-list, not here.
