  No. What I have [somewhere] is a tarball named ostep.tar.gz that I
believe was supposed to be source for OpenSTEP window manager for
XFree86. I may or may not have ever built it. It was in an archive
directory that I cleaned up & burned to CD a couple of months ago. All
I really know is that it was old, and that it has a Makefile but not a
"configure" script for automake.

  I hereby give up and holler "Uncle!". I'm convinced that:

A) It's not authentic OpenSTEP anything.
B) OpenSTEP was never the graphics subsystem of NeXTSTEP, as I had
C) What I have is very likely someone's FVWM "theme" package. The
        timeframe would fit.
