Running ldconfig on fvwm's directories partially does the trick.  But there
appears to be a bigger problem: fvwm also expects libXext and libXt to be
shared libraries, and apparently they're not.  Is there any way I can build
a shared library from the current libXext.a and libXt.a?  I tried various
combinations like:

   ld -Bdynamic -llibXext.a

but didn't get very far.

This is fascinating.  And I once thought I knew UNIX pretty well!  Thanks
for any replies.
