COuld you please provide me with a step-by-step guide on how to setup 
Matlab / on a FreeBSD 5.4 system? Is this DefaultFigureRenderer setting 
all you need to alter? And where do I put this configuration? 

I've installed Matlab 7 using:
	/compat/linux/bin/sh /path/to/matlab/install

This gives me a seemingly working Matlab, except almost everything I try 
to di results in a freeze. I get the same /lib/ cannot execute 
binary file error as you reported, but this doesn't seem to cause any 
trouble. Java crashes all the time too. Did you change the bundles java? 
If so, how?
