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...

As Thomas Esser pointed:

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.
