Tgif (originally the "Tangram Graphic Interface Facility") is a
classic drawing program for 2D vector graphics. Image objects can
be hierarchically constructed out of primitives such as polygons,
text, and splines (though the splines Tgif draws are not Bézier
It natively supports PostScript formats suitable for LaTeX, as well
as X11 bitmap or (version 1) pixmap formats. Other vector and raster
image formats such as SVG and PNG can be handled via filters.
Tgif stores drawings as .obj files and individual building-block
objects as .sym files, both in Prolog-compatible fact file format.

a function which will not interact badly with eglibc on amd64, corrupting
* Add dependencies to ghostscript and netpbm and recommend xfonts-75dpi.  
* Add richer default color map in /etc/X11/app-defaults.  This consists
of 50 colors drawn from the standard colors.  These
colors are not in the system rgb.txt and their Openoffice names can be

Tgif will have richer color map selections built in.
