I don't really "want" them (I also don't know much about X internals
and I'm writing on my diploma thesis, which reduces my available time
very much), but I regularly use xfig, so I could take this over, if
nobody else volunteers.

But I cannot promise to close all bug reports in the next days. I had
a look at the list and there are some, which can be closed or simply
fixed, but there are many others, which aren't trivial to reproduce or 
which should be forwarded to the upstream author (after checking, that 
they aren't fixed already by the actual upstream versions).
