If you are sure that you have the libXaw in the ports installed.
Then here are two solution:

- remap the libXaw8.so.8 to the version you have in /etc/libmap.conf
- if no luck, try to recompile the sources (distributed in dvd). if
the dvd version is not working (it shouldn't be, only CURRENT are
affected by a compilation error), try to svn the sources.
