Compiling GRASS 4.1 on Sun Ultra

Hi, Sandra,
The Motif libraries are required only for XGRASS, which is a gui for the 
standard GRASS programs. My advice is to not compile the XGRASS programs. 
If you want a nicer front end for GRASS, get the Solaris version of 
GRASSLAND from LAS' website (see recent postings on this list). GRASSLAND 
has some enhancements over standard GRASS, including a very nice graphics 
viewer. The only piece of XGRASS that I would be tempted to keep and use 
is xdigit, which is a stand-alone piece of code (doesn't need the rest of 
XGRASS; _does_ need Motif, though - I believe!). My $.02, and nothing
