I compiled xboard, but got problems in the Xaw3d widget set. It complained as follows:
   configure: WARNING: X11/Xaw3d/Dialog.h: present but cannot be compiled
configure: WARNING: X11/Xaw3d/Dialog.h: check for missing prerequisite headers?
   configure: WARNING: X11/Xaw3d/Dialog.h: see the Autoconf documentation
configure: WARNING: X11/Xaw3d/Dialog.h: section "Present But Cannot Be Compiled" configure: WARNING: X11/Xaw3d/Dialog.h: proceeding with the preprocessor's result configure: WARNING: X11/Xaw3d/Dialog.h: in the future, the compiler will take precedence
   configure: WARNING:     ## --------------------------------- ##
   configure: WARNING:     ## Report this to address@hidden ##
   configure: WARNING:     ## --------------------------------- ##

And the dialogs obviously weren't using the Xaw3d widgets. Not sure what this problem is-- I tried various versions of gcc, that made no difference. I guess the Xaw3d library headers are different between my current OS (Ubuntu 9.04 AMD64) and the last time I compiled (Ubuntu 7.10 AMD64).

On windows, moving to snprintf() broke all the microsoft compilers.

Other than that, it looks like we do need the htmlhelp package installed as I got undefined references for mingw, cygwin, and all MS compilers for MyHelp and HtmlHelp. MS 6.x (and probably others) do not have DWORD_PTR, so the HtmlHelp() prototype in winboard.c breaks there.
