1.) You cannot link against openmotif21 since it doesn't provide the
necessary .so symlinks. It doesn't store its libraries in %_libdir either,
so the linker search path would be different, too.

2.) Are they really *binary* compatible?

3.) Conflicts during installation/upgrade is among the typical "WTF?"
scenarios. Avoid them like the plague.
