Please have a look at the openmotif license. I do not think, that this is really a problem:

--- excerpt ---
2. GRANT OF RIGHTS
The rights granted under this license are limited solely to distribution and sublicensing of the Contribution(s) on, with, or for operating systems which are themselves Open Source programs. Contact The Open Group for a license allowing distribution and sublicensing of the Original Program on, with, or for operating systems which are not Open Source programs.
--- excerpt ---

This particular platform restriction makes it incompatible with OSI guidelines on open source as the openmotif FAQ itself clearly states. The Fedora packaging guidelines require that packages with either a Free software license as defined by FSF or a OSI certified open source license.

Openmotif fits neither.
