I have a Mosaic 2.7b2 / LessTif 0.33 NetBSD-Amiga native binary compiled, but with 
the same behavior you've mentioned :(  I was able to surf a bit, maybe five minutes,
before stdio armageddon.  The buttons are misshapen, and child windows aren't
dismissable, among other things.

Well, a successful compile is half the battle, no?  And for something as big
as Mosaic to compile cleanly without Motif, that's news.
