[LINUX] Issues with motif-2.3.4nb3 build

It seems that pkgsrc is not copying a required .la file into 

That file is '' (part of the util-linux package in Slackware).

So the build failed with:

libtool: link: warning: `/usr/pkgsrc/x11/motif/work/.buildlink/lib/' 
 to be moved
/bin/grep: /usr/pkgsrc/x11/motif/work/.buildlink/lib/ No such file

To make things work, I edited every .la file in


that contained a reference to '', replacing



and continued the build. Come to think of it, I could probably have
copied '' by hand into .buildlink/lib/ , but my experience
with both .la files and the buildlink mechanism is so scarce, that what
was likely the easiest way wasn't readily apparent.

Anyway, on Linux '' is a dependency listed in these .la files
used to build motif:,,, .
