FWIW, on my IPC I have exactly the same failure mode (I had run
strace, and was about to mail this problem this morning, when it
occured to me to RTFarchives).

I note that a previous poster said they had a binary with Xfree86 4.x
support for the bw2. I'm willing to try that in the future, but would
rather not download it over my sucky modem connection; so if anyone
has a workaround (remove the offending raster file?), I'd be grateful.
As an aside, my x86 box displays the raster files fine...
