I believe the hosed up Motif one is from the "external viewers" stuff
on the Mosaic home page. (ncsa.uiuc.edu?)
I felt it was inconsiderate of them (NCSA?) to provide this file and
not mention that this file was only for Motif... I'm sure others ftp'ed
it over a slow link, just to discover it was useless and it was
dependent on Motif. I subsequently ftp'ed the "normal" one from
berkeley, and it happily compiled...
