The packages containing the libs are parallel installable. The -devel
packages conflicts. lesstif has more subpackages than openmotif, 
so the lesstif subpackages (containing the programs) conflict against 
the openmotif package which contains programs and libs.

Indeed. Maybe Spot wanted to say that they can be built against lesstif.
Some of these apps are known to work with lesstif, though (nedit, ddd, xpdf,
grace and cernlib at least).

Of course, they'll be assigned to me as lesstif maintainer. It won't hurt
if there are other people in the initial CC list, though...
