[lsb-discuss] Lesstif and libXt.a

I looked in the list archives before posting here, but didn't go too
many years back.
First question: Is this list for discussing porting apps to LSB, or
just for discussing LSB itself? If only the latter, skip the next
question and tell me where I _can_ get help on app porting.
Second question: Is there a Lesstif LSB port available? Patches
available in order to do my own porting?
I've been trying to port an open-source Motif application to LSB but
ran into trouble getting Lesstif to be LSB compliant. Lesstif used
private interfaces in libXt which aren't of course in the LSB spec.
I don't have a libXt.a in my /opt/lsb/lib directory so I can't
statically link to the library. Statically linking to the OS'es
libXt.a gets Lesstif compiled, but then I run into symbols being
sized differently when I try to link it to my application or even to
a "HelloWorld" Motif program. I think I could get out of this mess
if I had /opt/lsb/lib/libXt.a available to me.
I'm currently using LSB-3.0 on SuSE 10.0 and using the lsbcc method.
Is there a better way to attempt to get Lesstif compiled?
