System: NetBSD polaris 1.3 NetBSD 1.3 (POLARIS) #0: Thu Mar 26 13:17:18 MST 1998 root@polaris:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/POLARIS i386

Xdeview really needs X11 to be useful, but gleefully disables the TK interface
(after installing a seriously broken tk) and then installs itself.
cd converters/xdeview && make -i

(yes.  I did say -i, because tk will error out a million times and install anyhow!)
