Screen captures WITH cursor using standard O/S toolsets

Is there a method to perform a screen capture that will include the cursor in it?
The snapshot and xwd screen capture applications do not allow me to capture cursors in
either the full screen or window captures.  We have a need for training materials to
capture some unusual cursors in a gov't created application.

I'd like to do this with the standard O/S tools without having to purchase any additional software.
Is this possible?

It is pretty weird, in the older versions of snapshot the cursor was there.
 
I remeber using that in trainingmaterial I made for SunNetManager.
On the other hand we were running own and not cde in those days, could be the answer.

But for now, use hoffmans solution

To experts ahoffmann and besky:
I checked twice, after each of your responses to me -
I do not have xgrab or xgrabsc
available on either of our Solaris 7 systems.

Is this an older program?

I will compile and check the app.  Thank you for your input.  Then I will attempt to grab the cursors for our training tomorrow.
