Hmm, I'm not knowledgeable enough to know for sure whether
pkgtools/x11-links should be providing that, but my initial feeling is
that it should not since I don't think is part of any of the
X11 packages supported by pkgtools/x11-links.

I guess the next question is, why is x11/motif trying to use
I see that pkgsrc has a devel/libuuid which provides, and it
also has a which should enable the native version on your
system to be used.  So, if x11/motif needs, then it should
depend on devel/libuuid, but it does not.  And on Darwin, I don't have
libuuid, yet I can build x11/motif just fine.  So, maybe x11/motif needs
a devel/libuuid dependency added for Linux, or maybe there's a configure
option to make it not use libuuid?

That's probably as far as I can go at the moment.  I think a more
experienced pkgsrc developer will know better how to solve this problem.
