You need * -dev * packages, as James explained.

If the package exists in Ubuntu (even if it's an older version), you can
save yourself a *lot* of problems by doing

sudo apt-get build-dep <name-of-package>

before doing the ./configure && make 

BTW, do you realise that kvirc is available pre-compiled in Ubuntu, right?

 $ apt-cache policy kvirc
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 2:3.2.0-5ubuntu1
  Version table:
     2:3.2.0-5ubuntu1 0
        500 dapper/universe Packages
