olwm core dumping under SunOS VNCServer

That copy of Xvnc was built with X11R6 (6.1?), not under any of the
original Sun NEWS junk that is part of SunOS.  The ProjectRoot was set
to /usr/X11R6.

I will say that it works for me w/ olvwm (version 4).  You might want
to doublecheck some of the internal defaults in the vncserver Perl
script such as fontpath, xauth location and RGB database.  Other than
that, I really dont know although if it really coredumps, you can get
a trace of the dump and maybe get more info if you have a decent
debugger such as gdb.  In the tarball, there are two versions of
vncserver, the first is what I use and the "~" version is what is
distributed w/ VNC.

PS. If someone wants to "archive" the SunOS tarball that is on
ftp0.lsil.com, that's fine w/ me but be aware that the tarball will be
auto-deleted (via cron) from ftp0 by this Monday.
