I correct : it is probably an issue in Debian Lesstif package,
which includes the installation phase.

Thoses functions are included in X libraries.

The debian lesstif package cannot be installed 
in the same time than openmotif (libraries or include).
It is also impossible to install the lesstif2-dev (include for 
motif 2.1) package in the same time than lesstif-dev package
(include for motif 1.2).
It is possible to install lesstif1 (libraries) and lesstif 2 
in the same time.

So I think the situation you describe is impossible.
