There is a general problem of the unavailability of libmotif4 in amd64
wheezy. It seems that a bug has been forwarded to the package
maintainer, however, nothing happened.

There are 32bit OpenGL-libmotif3-based old codes, quite useful in
science, and which are difficult to run on amd64, requiring perhaps
the installation of also the i386 version.

I took the opportunity to remind at large the problem.
