Hi Mike,

The OpenMotif dependency was so that VenueVNC uses the mwm window manger
instead of twm. Most users find mwm a little more intuitive to use.

OpenMotif was dropped in FC6T2 and put back in FC6T3, then dropped again
in FC6. I built the AG RPMs against a clean install of FC6T3.

The simplest thing is just to drop the OpenMotif dependency. I'll put up
new RPMs.

Thanks for the bug report.
