Thanks a lot. I started to work on this, and after some further tweaks
got xview to compile in mock for FC-5, and treetool too.
I got treetool to work on i386 machines.
There remains some problems though: on x86_64 the function
copy_va_to_av goes into an infinite loop when dealing with pointers.
Must be some 64-bit issue. This happens both using treetool and clock.
I put my current working copy of the packages SRPMS in
Not quite ready for prime time yet.
