It'd be helpful to know which version of Debian (Slink, Potato, ...).
If you're missing Xaw3d then you probably haven't grabbed all the
necessary X packages (like xaw3d). Anyway, you probably want to install
xaw3dg. Maybe you want to use apt?
$ apt-get update
$ apt-get install task-x-window-system task-gnome-desktop
