You did a new install of the 2.1.5 CD didn't you? I did the same thing
and got the same error. That and Xemacs is linked against the Motif
library, so if you want to use it you'll have to rebuild it in

What I had to do, since I'm no guru, was go and get my 2.1 CDs and
copy the file "/usr/lib/" from disk 2 to my own
/usr/lib, do a "ldconfig -m" and shazam! everything started working
again. Not a good situation if you ask me. Oh well.
