The problem is due to the original X11R4 libXmu shared library that came with
Openwindows 3.0.
The suggestions I received fall into 3 categories:

1) just ignore the error, but my executable crashed.

2) link the static version of the libXmu using -Bstatic -lXmu -Bdynamic

3) apply the following patches :

   Patch i.d. Bug i.d.'s O/S Description
   100512-02 1086793 1086912 4.1.x OpenWindows 3.0 libXt
                    1074766 Jumbo patch
   100573-03 1087332 4.1.x OpenWindows 3.0 undefined
                                        symbols when using shared

2 and 3 work fine !!
