I am having trouble with the graphics/dx package on a 1.4 system.
Specifically, when the program dxexec is invoked the loader cannot
resolve the _cerr symbol.  ldd dxexec yields the following:

        -lm.0 => /usr/lib/ (0x403a8000)
        -lGL.3 => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x403c1000)
        -lX11.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x40497000)
        -lXext.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x40529000)
        -lbz2.0 => /usr/lib/ (0x40533000)
        -lz.0 => /usr/lib/ (0x4053e000)
        -lg++.5 => /usr/pkg/lib/ (0x4054c000)
        -lSM.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x4058e000)
        -lICE.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x40596000)
        -lXm.2 => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x405a8000)
        -lXt.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x406a8000)
        -lc.12 => /usr/lib/ (0x406e5000)

The g++ library (from devel/libg++, version libg++- does not
define _cerr, though of course the system-supplied c++ library does.

Should dxexec (and perhaps other programs in this package) be linked
against the system c++ library as well as libg++?

Is anyone actually using this software in its current form?

Thanks for your help.
