However, it appears suboptimal to me that there now exist 2 packages which provide the same functionality only differing by the underlying widget library. I'd prefer dropping "xfig-Xaw3d" and "xfig" being built by default against "Xaw3d" which is already required by the new "xdvi" package of "tetex" successor "texlive" scheduled for inclusion into the next release. This would avoid clutter and unnecessary confusion.

This kind of choice is best left to the package maintainer.
