Zoularis was developed using X11R6, not openwin. The NetBSD xsrc
(3.3.6-based) client side used to compile fine on Solaris. That
was what was used. It was changed by someone else to be openwin,
but as far as I know, that's never been tested.  There are distinct
differences in imake, manual pages, etc, etc, etc, as you have
found out.  My apologies - I should have stamped that one out when
it happened.
