I don't know if this is the problem in your case, but there is a
general compatability problem between the intel version 9.0 compilers
and gcc-4.0, and I believe that on FC 5, gcc-4.0 is the default

The intel C++ (and C?) compilers rely on some GNU libraries, but the
version 9.0 Intel can't work with gcc-4, they need gcc-3. A
workaround if you have gcc-3.x somewhere on your system, is to give
the intel compiler the flag, -gcc-name=path_to_gcc_3_executable.

Intel says this is fixed in version 9.1, but I haven't had a chance to
check that.

Having said all that, your particular compiler errors look to me like
a semi-bug in the LEaP code. ShellP.h, etc. are supposed to be
*private* header files within the X11 implementation. User code is
just supposed to use Shell.h (without the "P"). I wonder if the code
would compile if you simply changed the include file names.

    David> Amber8 running on older versions of Fedora Core successfully?

Yes, I've got amber 8 running just fine on FC 3.
