When using lesstif-0.83, I had the same behavior. It lasted
much longer when using Motif 1.2.3.

The linker always picked the highest available library version
before, and not the best version in the first directory. I
changed this in -current, so -current should not have the
problem anymore (after the next update). To fix this on
an older system you can either 1) patch the Makefile to
link in the conflicting libraries statically, or 2) make
sure that netscape's own libraries have a higher version
number. This is a bit dangerous, but it should work
out in this case, because there are no references
to the "real" libutil in mozilla.
