A new tardist from squeen today - Xdvik 22.74.3:

Xdvik is a program for displaying DVI files (generated e.g. by Troff or TeX) on the X window system. It is based on the regular (non-k) xdvi of the same version number. The project's home page is at http://xdvi.sourceforge.net.

This package is a newer version of xdvik (v22.74.3) than the one installed along with the teTex-2.0.2 package (v22.40) available from http://freeware.sgi.com, which is also a prerequisite for this upgrade. I've tried to configure it to avoid stepping on the freeware version as much as possible, so executables are in /usr/local/bin and the name has been changed to xdvik, as opposed to just xdvi but both share the same configuration files in /usr/freeware/share/texmf/xdvi.

This particular build incorporates the Motif GUI and letter paper size as default. Some nice added features are:

+ Support for printing or saving a Postscript version of the DVI file
+ Rendering of Postscript images via ghostscript (anti-aliased!)
+ Several GUI enhancements: A page list for easier navigation, a status line, file selection dialogs, and a tool bar in the Motif version.
+ Support for inverse search - a mouse click in the xdvi window can open an editor with the corresponding TeX source (and vice versa)
+ Support for colored text
+ Support for HyperTeX: Follow links inserted by the hyperref package, and retrieve remote documents.
+ Direct rendering of Postscript(tm) fonts via t1lib
+ Support for saving (parts of) the dvi file.
+ Use of the Kpathsearch library to locate and generate files (hence the `k' in the name).

There is an optional INSTALL.IRIX file in the tardist that details all the configurations changes for this build.

NOTE: Versions 22.76.1 and 22.77.1 were found to be unstable builds, so this older version was selected for the tardist.
