I think that most important thing to be resolved before the final
release of TL7 is that Xdvi cannot run on *still* widely used RH6.x
(missing shared libraries: libXaw.so.7).
I got many messages concerning that...

I'm afraid that missing libXaw.so.7 can also occur on other not so
enough fresh Linux distributions, like Debian, etc., so any help or hint
would be appreciated urgently.
