My guess is that it is actually a bug in xleap, not the OS.
I'll bet you need to compile xleap with -n32 rather than -64 as the
compiler option (-64 might be the default on this machine.)

I'm not sure what is the easiest way to do this...You probaly need to find
out where your default Imake configuration file is (run xmkmf with no
arguments, and see what directory it is looking in), and either change
the "-64" argument somewhere to "-n32"; or you may have to add "-n32"
to the cc command itself.

Sorry I can't be more specific right now...maybe someone else on the list
has solved this problem?

...good luck...dac
