! AfterStep manages to run albeit without the necessary XPM graphic files.

! BTW, I'm using AfterStep 1.6.10 on SunOS 4.1.4

	Did you do a 'rm config.cache' after gettin the new header/libs?
are you using the --disable-script I suggested, and you must  unarchive a
*new* source code tree or do the 'rm config.cache' in order for
./configure to noticce the headers etc.
