bug with solution: libXaw3d.a exports _Xt functions
Thu Jan 30 09:30:00 GMT 2003
I have the latest version of cygwin and XFree86 installed on XP.
When I compile xfig 3.2.4 with xaw3d, it reports that many "_Xt..."
functions are redifined in both the Xaw3d library and the Xt library.
I then downloaded the xaw3d 1.5 source and compiled it by my self. After
I replaced the /usr/X11R6/lib/libXaw3d.a file with the new compiled
file. Now I can compile xfig with xaw3d without problem.
Therefore, the xaw3d coming with cygwin might be somewhat broken.
This is how I compiled xaw3d source on cygwin:
1. Download it from
2. Change the Imakefile by
(1) add EXTRA_INCLUDES = -I.
(2) (optional) Uncomment EXTRA_DEFINES = -DARROW_SCROLLBAR -DUSEGRAY
3. Run xmkmf ; make
4. cp libXaw3d.a /usr/X11R6/lib
