XView is a set of libraries so you dont run it. It provides an development
environment complaint to Sun's open-look. A few Sun tools like cmdtool,
clock are included.

I have tried starting olvwm/olwm via /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit. The server 
starts and I was excited for about 15 seconds: it crashes at my first
key stroke to a shell window. (I tend to believe this is a mach32 only
'feature'.)
