I have successfully installed djview4, but it also pulled in qt stuff.
 I have imagemagick installed, but I did not compile in djvu support

I had a gut feeling that viewers like gv or xpdf would have the
capability to view djvu files, since evince could do this, but I guess
I was wrong.

Thanks to both of you for your responses.

Best Regards,
