This version of XAnim was pulled because Cinepac received a patent for 
their Quicktime compression and asked the author to remove it 
(unfortunately, Cinepak compression is very good so most Quicktimes use 
it).  The author recently made available a precompiled object for Cinepak 
compression for SunOS only, so you'll have to make arrangements for him, 
if you'd like to see a NetBSD version.  For the latest XAnim news, go to:
