There is no global "motif" option yet.  I'm pro creating one, though.  

Concerning the usage of xaw (also relevant to my previous patch which
you already committed), I'm not sure what the impact of XAW_TYPE would
be on that.  teTeX's ./configure accepts --with-dvi-x-toolkit=(motif|
xaw|xaw3d|neXtaw), but I'm not familiar with xaw as to know what the
difference is.
