I don't believe /usr/X11R6/bin/xview has anything to do with xview as
you are referring to it. The XView that came from Sun is a user-interface
tool kit that consists of some libraries and header files.

I am not aware of an XView port being included in the YDL distributions,
but then again I have never made a point of looking for it ;)
