I just did the following:
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
