No, I didn't use the 'make install'. I used the NetBSD packaged xforms.
The 0.88 ELF libforms.so file has problems. It would install correctly.
But the library was linked against libGL.so when it was built. This breaks
other builds that don't have "-lGL".
/usr/X11R6/lib/libforms.so: undefined reference to `glXQueryExtension'

I agree. It would be great if we could build the binary package from
source, so I could build with or without libGL (for example) as an option.
