I forgot this earlier - if you install the openmotif packages that
should come with your distro, you shouldn't need to set/modify your
LD_LIBRARY_PATH. The libraries from distro packages usually get
installed in a location that is a default search path for that distro.

ld also has a config file which tells ld where to look for libraries
(again, this should be in the ld man page). On RHEL-based systems, that
file is /etc/ld.so.conf. May be in other places or have another name in
other distros.
