The Netscape off of the CDROM is native FreeBSD. My uninformed guess
based on location is that /usr/libexec/ld.so, /usr/X11R6/lib/libXt.so.6
and /usr/X11R6/lib/aout/libXt.so.6.0 are native to FreeBSD and that
/usr/compat/linux/usr/i486-linux-libc5/lib/libXt.so.6.0 are Linux
Is there any way to determine what magic number or version of
libXt.so.6 ld.so expects and query these libXt.so.6 files to see
their magic numbers?
I know this will be a lot easier when I upgrade to 5.X, get a high speed
connection and use the ports collection.
