If i re-think this the tarball is not needed. You always can check-out
the grass5.0beta7 tagged version, which includes the xgrass source. And
the grass4.3 source contains xgrass too.

You are right too. I read only a headline on a news-ticker. But it does
not matter anyway, because i believe Motif is almost dead, at least if
new projects are concerned. They released the Motif code with the faint
hope that they can push development of new linux applications, which
will not happen with QT/GTK/lesstif/wxWindows around.
