[tex-k] Non-fatal warning in xdvik

*Warning: Cannot convert string 
"-*-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*" to type FontStruct*

xdvik version 22.84.16 (Xaw toolkit)
Libraries: kpathsea version 3.5.7, T1lib version 5.0.1

Why does xdvik use a grimly proprietary Linotype font here?  Can 
anything be done with a fonts.alias entry somewhere to avoid this 

Be assured that, otherwise, I am very fond of xdvik, which improves my 
typesetting life immensely.  The non-persistent magnifier sub-window is 
way better than any of the more clumsy features I have encountered, and 
its edge can be used to check vertical (or even horizontal) alignment 
when you want to see whether you can safely use \hfuzz to gloss over a 
slightly (very slightly) over-length line.
