I see... (I did the last "cleaning" on that port years ago)

Your patch is an option, another one is merging xview-clients into xview. I
think the best would be to do something like ghostscript-x11 does, merge the
xview-clients patches into the xview port and add the Clients target from the
xview-clients port.

Yeah, it's quite a job and it has to be done with some care.
