Proposed patch

libXaw is more likely to be present on systems than open-motif, which is ancient and annoying to build (it currently has MAKE_JOBS_UNSAFE=yes).

It is not clear why the port was created many years ago with Motif support enabled instead of Xaw, but I do not see a disadvantage in making the switch now.
