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.
