Unfortunately not. I tried to contact the OSF for a source code license,
but they didn't bother to answer my request. Maybe they didn't need the
money then. It would have cost me a couple of thousand dollars, but I was

to do this any more. Instead I am supporting the development of LessTif,
a free Motif-clone. The latest release can be found at:
