Description bac 2002-06-14 11:20:20 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux alpha; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020610

Description of problem:
The transfig binaries do not appear to require X11, yet are in the binary
directory for X11 programs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Unset DISPLAY (if it is set)
2. Remove X11 directory from PATH
3. Try using (for example) fig2dev

Additional info:

This does not cause any problems by default, since /usr/X11R6/bin is in the PATH
even when X11 is not being used.  Customised environments are most likely to suffer.
