I have written a small awk-script which will take the output from
cxref and generate and xvcg graph description file. It's not very
pretty, but if anyone is interested, I can mail it to them.
I weren't very succesful with it, however. For my program, the call
graph got very large and complex and not very useful. I could probably
have hand-edited it a bit to remove the most commonly called utility
functions to get a nicer picture, but I decided it wasn't worth the
