Sounds like it.

You don't need X to be running to compile IceWM. (I have built IceWM
numerous times without any X running.)

What are the exact errors you receive when attempting to compile IceWM?

I am guessing you don't have the development headers (and maybe libraries)

In the meanwhile, use twm as your window manager. It is provided with
xorg. (But you need to install the correct package.)

Have a look at your available Fedora packages and install more xorg
packages. This will also fix the warning about your missing fonts.

(This list is probably the wrong list.)
