This is the error I get when running the ./configure command in the source folder for gtk+-3.2.3.

Any help on how to resolve this?

You should install libX11-dev in this case.

Note, that the best way to compile a custom gtk package is using apt-get source and dpkg-buildpackage. Use these steps as an example.
