 A note on "stealth dependencies" -- xfig originally used acroread
 and netscape as its PDF viewer and web browser.  My patches
 change the defaults to xpdf and firefox.  These are only used to
 read documents on the Help menu; they are not required for normal
 operation, so I have not listed either one as a run dependency.
 End-users can override these values by specifying the
 appropriate X Resources, e.g. through $HOME/.Xdefaults or xrdb.
 For example,  Fig.browser: seamonkey %f
 (Note that FreeBSD's wrapper scripts eliminate the need to use
 the -remote construct present in the app-defaults file.)
