Do a "cvs log" of the Makefile in suse_base and see when it switched
from 6.1 to 6.3, then, in each suse subdirectory, do 'cvs update -D "X
months ago"', where "X" is a number sufficiently far in the past to
get the 6.1 version. Finally, do a make clean in each suse directory,
and a make install. If the tarfile is still around, that should
install the older suse.

Of course, this may break lots of other stuff - are you sure you don't
want to just dig in and fix the problem with framemaker and 6.3
instead? ;-)
