  Aw, don't be frightened... it's just software!  By nearly I
meant that reputable, well-maintained packages will compile
with SWIM Motif.  Just as with Athena packages, anyone can
upload Motif-dependent software to the FTP sites and some is
bound to be, shall we say, not very portable to machines
different than the developer's.

  In my experience, packages such as XEmacs, Amaya, Thot,
Nedit, etc. will compile.
