Bug#402786: xawtv: includes GPL-incompatible code from Open Motif
common/RegEdit.c, common/RegEdit.h, and common/RegEditI.h come from
Open Motif, and have a GPL-incompatible license:

Basically, these files consist of a lint-cleaned copy of the X11R5
editres implementation and a single-line wrapper, XmdRegisterEditres.
I'm guessing they were distributed separately because this wasn't
available in X11R4.
Switching to equivalent functionality in libxmu6 comes down to
with code from <http://www.rahul.net/kenton/faqs/Motif-FAQ.html#288>:
XtAddEventHandler(shell_widget, (EventMask) 0, True,
(XtEventHandler) _XEditResCheckMessages, NULL);
(plus `-lXmu' on the link line).
In the case of xawtv, the Motif applications that use this (motv, mtt)
have already been separated into a non-free motv package. xawtv will
build fine if we just repackage xawtv_3.95.orig.tar.gz without
common/RegEdit*. (I'd do this myself, but I've lost my key.)
