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.)
