Configure line was
  CFLAGS="-O" LDFLAGS="-s" ./configure --with-libs=/usr/local/lib 
--with-includes=/usr/local/include --with-dbm=no --with-odbc=no
--with-postgres=no --with-fftw=yes --with-motif=yes --with-blas=yes
--with-cxx=no --with-opendwg
and the only modification required before running make was the usual one 
of commenting out the HAVE_KEYPAD line in include/config.h so it will work 
with the (buggy) IRIX Winterm.

become annoying.

But overall looking good. Very small package and quick to install as
