Hmm, do you have an old 'port' kit for this?  I built a moderately
recent version on FreeBSD 3.0-RELEASE and had no trouble.

On line 119 of xv.h, you'll see something like:

#  ifndef __NetBSD__  
     extern char *sys_errlist[];     /* this too... */
#  endif

Which should also apply to FreeBSD.  In my port kit for xv, this
is fixed via a patch in the 'jp-extension' add-on.  Perhaps you left
out that part?  Anyway, all of the 4.4BSD-derived operating systems
already have sys_errlist and don't need it declared.

A better way to go, in that case, would be to put your WindowMaker-specific
libraries in a special separate directory where they won't be inflicted
upon other applications.  That way you can have hacked versions installed
as needed, but still have the "stock" ports for general use.

Or, you can link WindowMaker with static versions of the hacked libraries
and not install them at all.



1. Problems with XV


I'm having a problem running XV from ny of the window managers. I try to
start up XV and I get the foll. Message :

/bin/sh : Cannot execute binary xv
/bin/sh : Exec format error.

Any idea what this error means ? I checked for the file xv and it's in the
correct place and is a proper Linux executable.

Thanks in advance for any help.
