 That's not what the R6 release notes think or what making the R6 libs
does. Xt (I think) always needs them.. if you use imake, that should
automatically put -lICE and -lSM into the Makefile when linking
with Xt.

 Xaw3d looks much nicer. In color, anyway. Somewhat better in mono.
If you had a working Ethernet card and another machine and MacX/eXodus,
you could use that to get color.

 Speaking of Athena Widgets, where can I find a list of resources used
by Xaw/Xaw3d, preferably with descriptions and possible values ?
