A longstanding issue in XFree86/Xorg has been fixed in Xorg-7.0 revealing this oversite in the motif code. Just figured I'd drop a line while I'm reviewing my patchsets. This was the other bug report I had not heard back on, hinted in my previous message.

Here is the error:

../../../src/solaris/native/sun/awt/awt_motif21.c:23: error: conflicting types for 'XmImGetXIC'
/usr/src/jdk/jdk-build/control/build/linux-i586/motif-i586/include/Xm/XmIm.h:64: error: previous declaration of 'XmImGetXIC' was here

IMO, it should be fixed in both 5.0 and 6.0, but is not explicitly required in 5.0 as the target build platform is still 'broken'. I don't know what the target platform is for 6.0. The thread where the previous Xorg/XFree86 behavior was determined to be 'broken' is here:

The previous definition is in motif/lib/Xm/XmIm.h (line 56) and determined by NeedWidePrototypes defined in include/X11/Xfuncproto.h, now fixed in Xorg but not sure about current XFree86. If the oversite is not immediately obvious after reviewing the code, a patch is below (watch the spacing, it'll get butchered).
