The commands did succeed, didn't they? If compilation failed for
whatever reason, the files won't have been installed.

If you execute "libwww-config --cflags", what does it output? There
should be a switch "-I/usr/local/include/w3c-libwww" or similar, and
the file "/usr/local/include/w3c-libwww/WWWInit.h" should be present.

BTW, I'm sure there are precompiled libwww RPMs available, you can
probably save yourself the trouble by using them rather than compiling
it yourself.

Cheers,

  Richard
