I tried to compile the xview v3.2p1 earlier this month, and ran into
nothing but problems.

Then I decided to grab the FreeBSD patch-set and installed that (renaming
everything "FreeBSD" to "NetBSD" of course).  Still nothing but problems.

One of the problems that I was having was that __NetBSD__ was getting
undefined (pre-processor things were sifting out code that had 
#ifdef __NetBSD__ in it and was acting on the trailing #else information).

I have grabbed the xview pre-compiled bins off of, but
haven't installed them yet (I want to compile this on -current).

If the person(s) who compiled this on NetBSD/i386 is reading this list,
I would be very much interested in getting a diff-set from you.

If someone else has anything that could shed light on what might be
causing this, I'd be happy to entertain e-mail.
