      What I had to do to build Xaw3d-1.5
      This it what I had to do to build Xaw3d-1.5:
      1. Execute "ln -s lib X11" in the xc directory.
      2. Remove the follwing lines from XawI18n.h:
      #ifdef HAS_WCTYPE_H
      #include <wctype.h>
      #include <widec.h>
      #define wcslen(c) wslen(c)
      #define wcscpy(d,s) wscpy(d,s)
      #define wcsncpy(d,s,l) wsncpy(d,s,l)

      3. Follow the instructions in README.XAW3D.
