Yes, it now runs.  So it looks like we have the following scenario:

1. Applixware v5.0 depends on the compat3x distribution, so it won't run on
an out-of-the-box FreeBSD 4.2 system.  I hadn't noticed that before because
I originally installed it on a machine that went through a phase running
3.x, so the older libraries were still there.

2. Applixware v5.0 can be installed anywhere you like as long as you use
the package, but you have to manually edit a shell script.  Eg,

pkg_add -p $PREFIX applix-5.0.tgz

Then edit $PREFIX/bin/applix and make sure APPLIX_HOME is set to

By the way, v5 seems to be much more responsive than v4.  Purely
subjective, of course, but I've had a couple of comments on it.
