Thanks to all who replied. A few of the responses suggested that if our
/usr/openwin was a symbolic link, to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to the real
directory, as doesn't follow symbolic links. That isn't our
problem, since we have the directory really at /usr/openwin.

Another suggested compiling the openwindows sources with R5. This won't
work since, libXt has changed, but a good thought.

The third responce was that ld had a bug, and that you could pick up
the fix (100107-06) from in pub/ and

The shell script demonstrates the error. That made me go to the Sun
bug list and I found 100257-03, which is a jumbo-patch for,
ldd and ldconfig.

Thanks again to all....
