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.
