It seems that all programs that use libXpm are also not working for me
with xlib6g.  I don't know if every program needs changed or if libXpm
just needs fixed.  In either case, It seems important that these
issues get resolved ASAP.  If someone who understands the details of
the problem would file a bug report with whichever package is the
culprit, I'd be grateful.  I would, but I don't know if it is the
individual packages (fvwm2, sxpm, etc...) or the library.
