Sarge has libmotif3 since someone went ahead and checked that it is
legal for amd64.debian.net to distribute it and did build it.

For etch/sid and the official archive nobody has done the work for
non-free. Non-free isn't autobuild, it might not even be legal to be
build and uploaded (see qmail for example). The only non-free packages
avaiable are those the maintainer uploaded and Gerd Knorr hasn't done
that for openmotif and amd64. Ask him to do that, although from
packages.qa.d.o output I gather he doesn't care about other
architectures very much.
