Karl, could you kind enough to update at least the i386-linux dvipdfmx
binary file to the latest version?  Or can you tell me how to compile
a version by myself ?

I want to use animate.sty with dvipdfmx.  and the following is my test file:

%<-----------------------<---------------------------<-------------------------
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[dvipdfmx]{graphicx}
\usepackage[dvipdfmx]{animate}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{verbatim}
\usepackage{fourier}

\usetikzlibrary{shapes,arrows,calc,trees,snakes}
\usetikzlibrary{mindmap}

\begin{document}

\begin{animateinline}[step, controls]{1}
\begin{tikzpicture} [thick]
\draw (0,0) rectangle (2,2);
\end{tikzpicture}
\newframe
\begin{tikzpicture} [thick]
%   \draw (0,0) rectangle (2,2);
\draw (0,1) -- (1,2);
\end{tikzpicture}
\newframe
\begin{tikzpicture} [thick]
\draw (0,0) rectangle (2,2);
\draw (0,1) -- (1,2);
\draw (1,2) -- (1,0);
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{animateinline}

\end{document}
%<-----------------------<---------------------------<-------------------------

I think maybe the latest dvipdfmx can handle this tex file correctly.

thx.
