Well, I think I have a fix for one of these packages.  I have been a
long-term user of x11/xview, and the fact that it was not building has
driven me nuts for months now.  Worse, it interfered with my tracking
2.0 and -current for some time.  A few weeks ago, I managed to take
some time and find what was broken on top of the imake templates which
the new gcc/cpp did not like, and I have done several builds using
these changes on 1.6.2, 2.0 and -current, and am running these on all
my machines.  But before I submit a PR, I would like folks to take a
look at what I have, make any comments, and possibly try them on non
NetBSD/i386 machines.  To save some space on the lists, instead of
attaching them to this message, I have put them up on the web.  You
can find a compressed pax archive of all the x11/xview* directories,
as well as the diffs in -u and -c format in the following directory:

As I said, please take a look at these, give them a try and give me
any feedback you have.
