X.Org has taken over maintainership of Xaw3d since D.J. Hawkey's passing. The 1.6 release was the first made by X.Org: http://lists.x.org/archives/xorg-announce/2012-January/001800.html and a 1.6.1 bugfix followup has been made as well: http://lists.x.org/archives/xorg-announce/2012-February/001827.html
Xaw3d 1.5E build problem
Under a newly built X11R6.8.2 (built as specified at http://lfs.osuosl.org/blfs/view/6.0/x/installing.html), imake generates a Makefile with no build commands; make does nothing and make install only installs headers. I have attempted building both within and outside the X11R6 source tree.
What I had to do to build Xaw3d-1.5
This it what I had to do to build Xaw3d-1.5:
1. Execute "ln -s lib X11" in the xc directory.
2. Remove the follwing lines from XawI18n.h:
#define wcslen(c) wslen(c)
#define wcscpy(d,s) wscpy(d,s)
#define wcsncpy(d,s,l) wsncpy(d,s,l)
3. Follow the instructions in README.XAW3D.
