The free version of Motif is called "lesstif."  You could build it
from the sources, but since it appears to require some patching for
FreeBSD it may be easier to install it from the ports/packages
collection.  Exactly where it is in the ports collection depends on
what release of FreeBSD you have installed, and it might be worthwhile
to install the appropriate upgrade package from
http://www.freebsd.org/ports/, download the latest version of the
portball and build and install from that.

Amaya itself needs a couple of small tweaks to build in FreeBSD.  I've made
