Attached is a patch to devel/flex that fixes the problem.  Would a
pkgsrc developer be willing to consider this fix and commit it if it
seems correct?

I think the problem was that the wrapper phase of x11/motif was using
the dependency_libs variable from /pkg-current/lib/ to determine
which libraries to link against.  That variable looked like this:

dependency_libs='-L/pkg-current/lib -lintl -liconv -lc -lm'

And otool confirmed this for the library:

$ otool -L /pkg-current/lib/libfl.dylib
        /pkg-current/lib/libfl.2.dylib (compatibility version 3.0.0, \
current version 3.0.0)
CoreFoundation (compatibility version 150.0.0, current version 855.17.0)
        /pkg-current/lib/libintl.8.dylib (compatibility version \
10.0.0, current version 10.2.0)
        /usr/lib/libiconv.2.dylib (compatibility version 7.0.0, \
current version 7.0.0)
        /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, \
current version 1197.1.1)

But there's no include in devel/flex/ for
devel/gettext-lib/, which is why the wrapper phase of
x11/motif did not create the symlinks in x11/motif/work/.buildlink/lib
for /pkg-current/lib/libintl*.

So, essentially devel/flex/ was not consistent with
dependency_libs in /pkg-current/lib/, and the wrapper phase of
x11/motif was using both of those, expecting them to be consistent.

The patch adds a build-dependency include in devel/flex/
for devel/gettext-lib/ which causes the wrapper phase of
x11/motif to create the needed symlinks, and then x11/motif builds

Does a pkgsrc developer agree with this analysis and fix, and if so,
would you be willing to commit it?

Thank you!
