It is not.

There's just one catch: nothing whatsoever in the motif distfile
contains the string 'uuid'. The reference must be coming from some .la
or .pc file somewhere -- it might be one provided by x11-links but
more likely it's in native X somewhere. Finding out where it's coming
from might be helpful.

It isn't clear to me what's going wrong though. In theory this ought
to work.
