The same problem does indeed occur on my system, however it is not 
"broken" as a result of it. Lesstif compiles and functions perfectly 
well without it, the only difference is the lack of Xrender.h causes 
lesstif to not compile against XFT. After compiling and testing with 
--x-includes and without it I can't actually notice any difference, 
although I don't know if I'm using what XFT provides within my document 
to provide a fair test. Perhaps someone could test this.
