Btw, since openmotif is non-free, and there is an open-source alternative
(lesstif), why don't we change the default to lesstif on all platforms?  How
many packages do we have that don't build with x11/lesstif but do with
x11/openmotif?  AFAIK only wip/jdk14 and wip/jdk15 (I haven't verified this,
but the Makefile sets MOTIF_TYPE=openmotif).
