As far as I remember 'Includes' are header files. I would check this now, but I'm having to work at an XP machine - pity poor me! Are you trying to compile from source? That's often when that message occurs.
There may be a directory or two on your system called /includes - don't take my word for it, try searching :o
I would suggest using the package manager instead of compiling from scratch. If you are a hard-boiled 'compile from source nutter', then you'll need to include the right path to the header files.
You may wonder what header files are? I don't write code, but they end in 'filename.h' and are often part of C or C++ source.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso

Most likely he had an unresolved dependancy. I think that's when that error is most likely to occur.
Sometimes 'development versions' of various libraries are needed to install a package. The trick is to find out which ones.
Edit: I suggest using urpmi to install Kopete. Don't try to install from source.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso
