The libXaw3d is missing from XFree86-libs in RHEL3-U2, preventing emacs installation

2. Try to install emacs from RHEL3 (there is no RHEL3-U2 version).
[root@powerv2 root]# rpm -i /tmp/emacs-21.3-4.ppc.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libXaw3d.so.7 is needed by emacs-21.3-4
No error; it should just install.
libXaw3d is not part of XFree86 nor XOrg, and never was. It is a

Reassigning to Xaw3d component.
Xaw3d is a separate package. Xaw3d-1.5-18 was included in RHEL3!
please make sure that you have to install Xaw3d package!
