We're beginning to see more and more Motif programs linked against
Lesstif in the distribution.  You could try substituting it in.  I
notice there's a new release (0.77) of Lesstif for Debian.  Get the
Lesstif source if you're on a dialup, since it's smaller - it compiles
cleanly (did for me).

Lesstif aims to be source compatible to Motif 1.2 (binary
compatibility may be an added bonus).  See http://www.hungry.org for
more details on Lesstif.

Best wishes,
