And thank you for the answer!
Indeed, I refer to SlackBuilds/12.1/libraries/openmotif. The problem is
that the two of them provide similar things, since lesstif is an
implementation of the motif api(*). I suspect that some (many) files
have the same names and locations since, as I can understand from the
SlackBuild file, openmotif gets installed under /usr like lesstif. Thus
problems may arise.
(*) From lesstifs' description: "It (i.e. lesstif) aims to be source
compatible with OSF/Motif(R) meaning that the same source code should
compile with both and work exactly the same."
