Sure. But first, I'd like to check to see if the applications will
work with lesstif. Maybe we'd be able to get rid of some of those
staticly-linked Motif apps (if they work with lesstif).
However, I'm going to be fairly busy in the next few weeks, travelling
and such. Plus, I really have no experience with X programming, so
I may be a bit slow in figuring out lesstif. It looks like it may
be a bit of work testing out these apps with lesstif -- does anybody
else want to help out?
Also, what is the recommended way of declaring dependencies for apps
which use Motif and work with lesstif? What if the user has the
real Motif libraries? Is there a virtual package?
