My general assumption was that you would build lesstif after you have
built Xorg. Is there something in Xorg Applications that makes use of

If there is nothing in X that makes use of Lesstif then we could
probably change Xorg Libs to the X Window System. Some people may
disagree on account of technicality, but I feel that, as a whole,
depending upon both Applications and Libs is enough to qualify it as
depending upon the X Window System. I just can't think of a situation
where someone would want Xorg Libs and Lesstif, but not Xorg. I grant
that it's only needed for the test suite, so it's sort of a grey area.

What's the opinion on this? Make Xorg Apps recommended with a
parenthesis about the test suite or change Xorg Libraries to Xorg.
