Hi Brian

Thanks for reporting this.  I don't believe it matters that libmotif3 is no
longer in the archive.
Users may have never removed libmotif3 after an upgrade, or may have
installed it manually for compatibility with commercial software.

The motif packages now include compatibility with libmotif3 and therefore
should properly transition from libmotif3.
