mew in emacs(x11) tries to show a picture of cute cats, Mew.png, on its start time. But currently it searches a wrong directory, thus fails to run.

* search path: /usr/pkg/share/emacs/site-lisp/mew/etc/Mew.png
* real path where Mew.png exists: /usr/pkg/share/mew/Mew.png

$ emacs (not emacs -nw)

M-x mew

I don't know if 'etcdir' setting is essential or not. Anyway, mew runs successful without 'etcdir' setting.

(It seems that the problem is due to some bugs in mew itself, but elisp is beyond my ability. :p)
