Yes i do agree that the intial email lacked enough information on what version 
of BSD i was using and did send that info through once reminded of that fact.

But i honestly didnt see the point in everyone hashing out why i was using 
XFree86 over Xorg amongst other things, which ended up in a heated long 
discussion.  I personally cant see the big deal about what X server someone 
uses, that was and is my only point.

But i do thank the person who did provide me with the solution of changing 
imake.  Being as i did that then re-did a CVSUP i couldnt say for sure if 
that was the main reason why it was fixed, but none the less it is fixed now.
Yours Sincerely
