Thanks, I did not know this.. I wondered why it was becoming harder and
harder to find afterstep stuph out there.  Maybe I'll switch my desktop
to WindowMaker.

Sometimes you might be surprised at what you can do by compiling the
program yourself.  The gimp .99.15 package in the Debian distribution
claims it needs libc6, but if you get the source distribution yourself
you will find it compiles just fine under libc5.

This may also be the case with wwwoffle.  To be honest, wwwoffle sounds
to be the more intelligent solution anyways.
