Some libraries found

     I apologize for not being more observant in my quest for the libraries, 
but I am doing this in what little time I manage to steal during class (I am 
supposed to learn how to use Solaris 7, but the built in window maker -- cde 
-- is so ghastly that I just have to get AfterStep on it as soon as 
possible).

     Anyway, I managed to find "local" versions of two of the three 
libraries I should have -- "xpm-3.4k-sol7-intel-local," and 
"jpeg-6b-sol7-intel-local."  These I managed to install (I hope), using the 
pkgadd command.  The "libpng-1.0.5.tar.gz" was more difficult, since I first 
had to download and install a gunzipper before I could gunzip it.  Now it 
turns out that before I can install the png lib I have to install something 
called a "zlib."   Now I am getting worried that it will turn out that 
before I can install the "zlib" I will have to install a "ylib," and that 
before I can install a "ylib" I will have to install an "xlib," and that 
before I can install an "xlib" I will have to install a "wlib" and so on.  
All I really want to do is to install AfterStep.  Oh well, I am off to 
search for "zlib."  Thanks for all help.
