[...re: compiling motif on NetBSD...]
-> It's a pain, but it can be done.
-> I've compiled 1.2.4 successfully, and 2.0 with partial success (run-time
-> errors like crazy).
I compiled a few of the earlier 1.2.x releases and 2.0.1 succesfully
on the i386 port. Both took a lot of hacking on config files, but
2.0.1 was much easier. I wouldn't say either falls into the "the
nastiest thing I've compiled on NetBSD" category, as there's stuff
out there that I've simple given up on 8-), but the build did take
a little "creative tweaking" of the X/Motif Imake config files.
Once the config files fell into place, the rest of the build was
easy... I still have access to the hacked up Imake config files
(based on X11R6.3's) that I used to build 2.0.1, if anyone cares...
