Subject: R-alpha: X11 Yet Again

There is yet another devX11.c at stat.auckland.ac.nz which should be
used to replace the one in src/graphics.  This one attempts to use
100 dpi fonts, and failing that tries fonts at whatever resolution
the server has.  As a final fallback it will use the "fixed" font.
(Note the R graphics programs are really designed to use the 100dpi
fonts and the results may look a little substandard without them).

I have tried this out with the OpenWindows server on SunOS 4.1.4 (which
seems to be strictly 75dpi) and it seems to work for me.
