  Are you using Motif or Lesstif clone ???
In the latter case you need to apply the patch found at 
to get a correct behaviour, both for amaya and Thot.
I rebuild Amaya and Thot latest public versions on
LinuxPPC last week using Lesstiff 0.80, everything compiled
fine (I had to disable java too) and It was kinda usable
once the patch applied, but I didn't found it stable enought
to release it. Things are moving so fast in LinuxPPC that
I don't think I can follow it ...

I was unable to get it to run with Motif on the PPC platform,
I recompiled Motif-2.0 from sources, but I had the same kind of
problem : As soon as I try to open a menu, Thot or Amaya crashes
within a second, probably due to some kind of callback from

  hope this help,
