I don't know, at the moment.  Probably have to poke around in the
Developer Tools documentation.

I finally completed building x11/qt3-tools.  The following Makefiles
all needed "-ldl" added to their LIBS definitions.


Once that was done, cad/qcad/work/qcad-1.5.4/Makefile also needed "-ldl"
added to its LIBS definition.  Qcad then finished building, installed
and appears to run fine.  It launched, anyway.  I haven't tried actually
doing anything with it yet.
