since openMotif is not provided in the base slackware installation, then
having it here is not duplicating what is already provided.
i think the best solution is to just document it in the README, especially
if there are other projects that explicitly require it.
as for having it scripted to automatically remove any conflicting
packages, that just sounds like an offending problem waiting to happen,
and a solution that wouldn't be best for everyone.
