I was referring to the implementation in this case. As far as I know
there is no free implementation of Motif. Lesstif is far from a full
implementation and those who have tried big apps with lesstif have
generally reported badly upon it.

Unix98 doesn't address the ABI spec that I can see, correct me if I am
wrong however and it is covered indirectly or elsewhere.
