"xfig -h" gives me the help text but I might have edited the "xfig" 
wrapper script.

If I remember correctly, the script might be missing passing args to 
xfigbin.  The following is my /opt/csw/bin/xfig

exec /opt/csw/bin/xfigbin "$@"

I actually have a separate wrapper that also adds color

exec /opt/csw/bin/xfigbin -xrm "*customization: -color" "$@"
