Well, I'm working on it. 

I took the patches that were posted to one of these lists a few days ago and
applied them. Then I tried to do a build, but got a pile of errors (no, I
don't have them handy, sorry).

I just got lesstif built before I went to bed last night. 

If anybody else has any patches, feel free to swing them my way. I'll do the
same, obviously. 

I'm not expecting many 32->64 bit problems due to NS working on OSF/1. Could
be some, but hopefully not many. 

BTW, I'm using GNU make to do builds. I assume that's correct, as our make
bails totally.
