Then I'm sorry, I tried to reproduce the problem, here my results on a fresh
installed sarge chroot:

	root@lisa:/# apt-get install libmotif-dev
	Reading Package Lists... Done
	Building Dependency Tree... Done
	Package libmotif-dev is not available, but is referred to by another package.
	This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
	is only available from another source
	However the following packages replace it:
	  lesstif2-dev lesstif-dev
	E: Package libmotif-dev has no installation candidate
Okay no problem, then we could use:

	root@lisa:/# apt-get install lesstif2-dev
	Reading Package Lists... Done
	Building Dependency Tree... Done
	The following extra packages will be installed:

Works no problem. And for completeness my sources.list:
	root@lisa:/# cat /etc/apt/sources.list 
	deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ sarge main
	deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ sarge main
	deb http://security.debian.org/ sarge/updates main

So you should really check your sources list and if you really have a sarge
system and not sid/etch.

Best wishes
