OK, I see that Funda synced lesstif with Mandriva and fixed the package. It now builds locally and I believe it is OK. On the build system,
it always fails with gcc segfaulting, and it fails at a different place every time. I have seen this with other packages where eventually it
will work, and it seems to be a resources issue that causes it. It appears not enough resources (probably RAM) are allocated to the VM (I'm
assuming it's a VM) on the build system to build this package.
