I just recompiled grass for my DEC Alphastation and for my SGI INDY. After
getting the usual (?) compilation errors, I finally got everything up and
running. Or so I thought!

When I say 'd.mon start=x0' to my Alphastation it says:

Graphics driver [x0] started
can't read index!
ERROR eof from graphics driver.
Problem selecting x0. Will try once more
Please start graphics monitor <x0>.
Error - Graphics monitor <x0> not running!

Seems like X is missing something, but what? Any help appreciated.
