1. XVIEW- where is the latest for Sol 5.7, Xview 3.2 producing compile errors...

Hi all
SORRY _ REPOST. Need to get Xview working ... I have installed X1R6.4,
and am using the
instructions given in the Xview Readme - without success...
Any ideas please

 I am trying again to install Xview 3.2 on a SUN U1 with Solaris 7
I get the messages
# imake -DUseInstalled -I/usr/X11R6.4/lib/X11/config -I./config
"/export/home/Archive/xview3.2/config/XView.tmpl", line 198: macro _Use
redefines previous macro at "/usr/X11R6.4/lib/X11/config/Imake.rules",
line 257
when I run the imake as per the README

and if I make World without the imake get-

rm -f *.CKP *.ln *.BAK *.bak *.o core errs ,* *~ *.a .emacs_* tags TAGS
make.log MakeOut  "#"*
cleaning in ./images...
make: Fatal error in reader: Makefile, line 676: :/:: conflict for
target `all'
Current working directory /export/home/Archive/xview3.2/images
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `clean'
Current working directory /export/home/Archive/xview3.2
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `World'

at the end of the world.make file

I have set IMAKEINCLUDE to
-I/export/home/Archive/xview3.2/config -I/usr/X11R6.4/lib/X11/config

Any idea what's going on???? Thought this would be simple!!
