abicheck on ddd is happy when lesstif is removed and the old openmotif21
compatibility pkg is installed. The lesstif folks indeed aim at full
compatibility with Motif 1.2 and 2.1 according to their docs.

Except the /usr/X11R6/lib path causes trouble. That is not good.
openmotif21 if installed resolves dependencies on lesstif sonames.
