USAGE
       Here are	some real life usages.

       Checks for xft support:
       if fvwm-config --supports-xft;
	 then echo 1; else echo	0; fi

       fvwm-themes package checks for the correct fvwm version	installed  us-
       ing:
       fvwm-config --version
       and tries to use	the same installation directories:
       fvwm-config --bindir --mandir --fvwm-datadir

       A way to	find the full path to the fvwm executable:
       echo `fvwm-config --bindir`/`fvwm-config	--fvwm-exe`

       A way to	start modules in perl:
       use lib `fvwm-config -p | tr -d '0`;
       use FVWM::Module;

       For a more human	readable output, try:
       fvwm-config --info

       fvwm-config  is	a  part	 of  fvwm  package and distributed by the same
