Simple.h and SimpleP.h aren't part of the PLT source distribution;
they're part of your X libraries.  Most likely, you don't have the
appropriate development package installed.  The exact package name
depends on your distribution; for Debian/stable, it's libxaw7-dev.

Alternatively, if you do have a copy of these files on your system as
part of your X installation, it's possible that the PLT makefile isn't
looking in the right place (although in my experience, it usually gets
this right).  Check the arguments to configure for a way to fix this.
