Well, I think I'm using one of the more current stable versions, the one
that came with the current stable (1.2). I did not use unstable. Is vim
supposed to be dynamically linked to the Xaw library? I and another user
have reported that an ldd does NOT in fact show it to be dynamically
linked to any X11 libraries. Is there one that has X support and one that
doesn't? That's where the confusion was.
