I asked the same thing back when this happened.

The problem is the motif buidlink forces USE_X11BASE which I disagree with.

No one else has piped up regarding this and I'm of the opinion that xemacs
should go back to living in /usr/pkg like it always has.

(and honestly removing the buildlink "addition" that the motif buidlink
puts in...There's no reason for it that I could see).
