If this Open Motif can be distributed as a port or package for FreeBSD
itself (and it seems to me that it can), then what hassle is that for
JDK on FreeBSD?  My guess is the Open Motif port/package will exist on
FreeBSD anyway, for those who want motif but are not going to install
JDK.  At that point, it's just another package-dependency for the JDK
like any other package-dependency.  Certainly no one will want TWO
copies of Open Motif...
