Ah, but it does.  I assume they are the same graphics as in nethack-qt.  The
snag is that they are not installed correctly because of the way that nethack
has been split up.  Install nethack-x11 from the package system, rebuild the
x11tiles file in the work directory, replace the x11tiles file in nethackdir,
set :

	*Tile_file:	x11tiles

in your X resources and away you go.
