I was told that XGAP will also run under SUN's OpenWindows. It
doesn't however compile under OpenWindows. If any OpenWindow guru can
fix this, please send me a patch.

Well, it compiled just fine for me this afternoon. There were no problems
with any of the graphics stuff. I am using Solaris2.3/OpenWindows3.3.
The only thing is that, Solaris does not provide 'wait3', but only the
'waitpid', so you must link with the BSD libraries by adding
-L/usr/ucblib -R/usr/ucblib -lucb to the linking step of the compilation.
This is (so I am led to understand) not the preferred solution, but
it works; later, I'll try to figure out how to use 'waitpid' as the
Solaris documentation suggests.
Anyway, although I've just installed it today, so far,
it looks impressive! Very nice! Thank you!
