Could this be a solution?
ftview seem to look for X under /usr/X11R6. So old-fashioned!

Sounds likely. Thanks for the pointer

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.

Behdad, correct me if I am wrong, but I believe this is just a duplicate of the
earlier clone bug 216222 ?
