Description m.o.e. 2003-12-07 17:36:16 UTC

I guess since nedit 5.4 is still in rc2 it's to early to ask for an ebuild, 
however, when building it manually in /usr/local, nedit refuses to build 
against both openmotif-2.2.2 and all lesstif versions available in Gentoo.
Also referes to these URLs:

Could Gentoo please stay away from "highest-version-is-always-best" 
(QA please) and use versions that are compatible with current programs? 
For nedit that would be openmotif-2.1.30 -- but for some reason that is 
updated continously to 2.2.2 because certain packages explicitely ask for 
2.2.2 -- and also by world updates. Lesstif still overwrites most of
openmotif -- as discovered in the opera bug a veeery long time ago.

this bug speaks of the issue with nedit and Motif clones :

(issue did not change since RC1)

Ummm, I don't want to offend anyone, but at this rate, it will be a 
very looong time until a solution to 29388 is found. A solution to a 
problem that continues to exist for more than 14 months now. A problem 
that shouldn't have passed basic QA in the first place.
