Could this be a solution?

ftview seem to look for X under /usr/X11R6. So old-fashioned!
Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2006-11-17 16:25:55 EST
Sounds likely. Thanks for the pointer
Comment 3 Behdad Esfahbod 2006-11-21 16:15:32 EST
Thanks for the pointer.  Seems like it.  Last time I looked into it, I was
surprised to find that ftview is not linked to xlib at all.  This explains it.
