Lesstif tests require Xorg-apps

My dependency chain looks like this:

Xorg-Apps -> MesaLib (recommended dep) -> Lesstif (optional dep)

So, trying to run the Lesstif testsuite prior to building Xorg-Apps I get:

make[3]: Entering directory `/sources/blfs/lesstif-0.95.2/test/Xm/drag_help'
gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I../..  -I../../../include/Motif-2.1 -I../../../include/Motif-2.1 -I../../../include/Motif-1.2 -I../../../include/Motif-1.2     -g -I/usr/include  -c test1.c
test1.c:19:28: error: X11/bitmaps/Excl: No such file or directory
test1.c:20:33: error: X11/bitmaps/FlipHoriz: No such file or directory
test1.c:21:32: error: X11/bitmaps/FlipVert: No such file or directory

This is because those files come from the bitmap-1.0.3 package that is
within the Xorg-Apps bundle.  Is it worth putting a note on the Lesstif page to
this effect?  e.g. under the Recommended deps you'd put
"Xorg Apps (if you run the test suite during the build)", similar to the note
on OpenSSL's page regarding 'bc'.  Mentioning the circular nature of this dependency
may also be in keeping with similar notes in the book (ala the Perl Modules).
