I just did the following:

	pkg_delete openmotif
	cd /usr/pkgsrc/x11/lesstif && make install
	cd /usr/pkgsrc/www/amaya && make show-var VARNAME=MOTIF_TYPE

The result was "lesstif", since lesstif was found to be installed.  This
assumes your lesstif installation was via pkgsrc.  If you installed lesstif
in /usr/local or some other private tree, then you'll have to set MOTIFBASE
to point to that location.  Otherwise, the autodetection works as advertised
for me.
