You have a library search path and I believe you can build the app with
your own libraries earlier in the search path with -rpath. I'm no expert
here but the C library/ld.so linker folks could give you a definite
answer. You should be fine providing you don't link with a library from
another random vendor which itself links to a different Motif library -
which I don't think will be a problem here.
