NetBSD/sparc-1.3.  Package from
System: NetBSD mobeius 1.3 NetBSD 1.3 (GENERIC_SCSI3) #0: Thu Jan 1 19:03:39 MET 1998 pk@flambard:/usr/src1/sys/arch/sparc/compile/GENERIC_SCSI3 sparc


The lesstif-0.81 package ships with several Motif(R) enabled binaries and
three shared libraries.  The binaries in the NetBSD/sparc set (and possibly
other architectures) appear to have been linked against a set of shared
libraries with different versions than those shipped with the package.  The
linker stub,, complains about the mismatch.

(Motif is a registered trademark of the Open Software Foundation.)

1. Install lesstif-0.81.tgz package using pkg_add.

2. Run %INSTALLBASE%/X11R6/bin/mwm

3. will complain ``warning: minor version >= 80 expected,
   using it anyway''.  (Mwm will succeed in loading, provided a suitable
   X server can be found.)
