Peter,

Chris Faylor had said that apps that run under X need to go in the XFree86
directory... but I'm not sure if that means that it should be stuffed into
the XFree86 category as well:

http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-xfree/2002-04/msg00538.html

Does x3270 only have an X component or does it run in a normal shell too?
As you can tell, I have no idea what this program does and I don't really
have time to look...

Harold
