[From Brian Ford:]

I've updated the version of lesstif to 0.93.91-1.

LessTif is a freely available Motif clone. It aims to be source level
compatible with Motif 1.2 and to some extent 2.0/2.1.  It is distributed
under the terms of the GNU Library General Public License (LGPL).

The Cygwin version is from the vanilla sources with one tiny patch to 
mwm that
existed in previous releases.  Additionally, I have disabled the 
Xft support for antialiased fonts using freetype/fontconfig that was enabled
by default in this release.  For details about this choice, see:

Feedback about this issue is welcomed and should be directed to the
cygwin-xfree mailing list mentioned at the end of this announcement.
