The following notes are contributed from Tix users on various platforms. I have no access to these platforms and cannot verify that their settings are correct. Also, the settings may only work with a specific versions of Tix on a specific version of the O/S.

1.  Throw ANSI flag on the compiler (I set PROTO_FLAGS = -Ae)
2.  Change the X11 directories to -I/usr/include/X11R5 and -L/usr/lib/X11R5
3.  This might affect other systems: the Makefile included -lX11 before
    -ltk and -ltcl, so I switched the order.  (Obviously a bug, since
    there is a comment right above it that told me what to do :-).

   The above is a very common problem with Solaris2.4, I am pretty
   sure when you are creating your _tixwish_, its picking up the UCB
   library, that is you must be having /usr/ucblib/ or whatever in
   your LD_LIBRARY_PATH or LD_RUN_PATH, REMOVE it OR make sure that
   the standard libraries or before the ucblibs..  Now, its strange
   that it shows up, because I don't think the tix fileselect box has
   been implemented in "C", so it should not have shown up??

   You might have to recompile your tcl/tk libraries with the
   offending libraries out of the way..because I use a Solaris2.4
   machine and I have no problem at all!!..  Cheers, Mohan
