By clean solution do you mean the #define XAW3D1_5E thing?  I tried it
once and it did not work for me.  The only solution I found so far is not
to use the Xaw3D toolkit.  This works well; true, I loose some eye candy
but not much and xfig is an ugly (and useful) thing anyway--that's why I
like it in the first place.
