I do it "the normal way". Of course installing libxaw6 solves the 
problem, thanks Frank!

I just wonder: is it unusual to have libXaw.so.7 instead of libXaw.so.6? 
Debian Sarge is not known to integrate latest libs, I fear RedHat and 
other Linux distributions might no longer have libXaw.so.6 either. Yet 
another point to mention in the documentation?
