xbuffy on RHEL4

Cc: jdm at, mako at

  RHEL4 too doesn't have xbiff, and so I downloaded the most recent
version of xbuffy I could find.  But here's what happened

$ rpm -i --test xbuffy-3.3-1.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by xbuffy-3.3-1.i386 is needed by xbuffy-3.3-1.i386
$ locate

What did you do?  Did you link to  Did you
recompile from source?

Thanks, Steve
