not in /usr/openwin/lib etc.

Nice ;-((

Note that checking for /usr/openwin is obsolete in Solaris, checks should be
done to /usr/dt first, then /usr/openwin should follow as fall-back...

Adding --x-includes=/usr/dt/include --x-libraries=/usr/dt/lib to configures cmd
line fixes the minor problem
-- snip --
checking for X... libraries /usr/dt/lib, headers /usr/dt/include

but libXp seems to be completly gone in 2.7 :-(

Just want to answer Roland's question on "what's Xp?"
libXp is the X Print Client Library, which provides public APIs to allow client
  applications to render to non-display devices.
The library is introduced in the last quarterly update release of Solaris 7,
  and more bug fixes in Solaris 8.  The library is located at /usr/openwin/lib
  & is part of the X11R6.4 port which goes in the abovementioned releases.

Just to weigh in on this one: is it really a Severity:major bug, since the Motif
code base is now dead and rotten?  It seems to me that the bug could even be
closed if one specifies in release notes that M10 will only compile on current
Solaris 7 or Solaris 8 systems, or if you get libXp and compile it yourself
from The Open Group.

Anyway, I'd think that severity could be lowered, or the bug could be closed
out with this kind of info.

OK, we may close this one and try to fix bug 22266. 
I don't like to see Motif broken because this breaks a lot of other things
(cross application DnD etc.)...

BTW: Is printing via Xp implemented ?
