the Xaw library contains some widgets required for the compilation.
You can retrieve them from many sites. I work on HP, and I ftp-ed them
from a dedicated server, but I think that you may find them around.

You can try through the 'archie' service:
1- telnet on one of the following (user: archie, no password):              Australia*      Austria*    Austria*     Canada      Finland     Israel        Japan*    Korea*	Korea*       Sweden*      Switzerland    Taiwan    United Kingdom         USA (NE)*     USA (NJ)         USA (NY)    USA (MD)

2- type the command 'find [string]', e.g. 'find Xaw'
3-  "   "     "    'mail [user at ....]'

You will receive a list of sites on which Xaw is available.

Good work!
