While doing a compile of Emacs-21.3, the build process ended with the 
following error:

===>   emacs-21.3_3 depends on executable: gmake - found
===>   emacs-21.3_3 depends on file: /usr/local/bin/autoconf213 - found
===>   emacs-21.3_3 depends on shared library: Xaw3d.8 - not found
===>    Verifying install for Xaw3d.8 in /usr/ports/x11-toolkits/Xaw3d
===>   Returning to build of emacs-21.3_3
Error: shared library "Xaw3d.8" does not exist
*** Error code 1

This has also happened to me while trying to compile Xfig & 
The Zaw3d libraries are installed and a file shows a number of 
references to *xaw3d* but not to "Xaw3d.8"
For example:


I can't find any references to this problem in the archives or the web.

Does anyone have any ideas? If I installed Xfig & Emacs as a package 
over FTP, would that process interfere with my existing libraries?
