Probably because I enabled motif instead of Xaw3d when I ran the configure
script.  Do you really want the Athena widget set?  Is that library
actuallly on your system?  Where?  If it's in /opt/sfw/lib then your
environment should contain

[duhring]$ echo $LDFLAGS
-L/usr/openwin/lib -R/usr/openwin/lib -L/opt/sfw/lib -R/opt/sfw/lib
before running the configure script.

A blank line appeared because I do not have either of those values set in
my environment.  I do not require them for any of the software which I
have built on this machine.  Neither are they required for the OS software
supplied by Sun; they built those binaries with the correct LDFLAGS in the
compiler user's environment.

No, my opinion is that neither of those values should be set.  They are
unnecessary and evil.  Set LDFLAGS in your environment correctly -before-
running any GNU configure script.

You probably should also set CC and CFLAGS:

[duhring]$ echo $CC
[duhring]$ echo $CFLAGS
-O2 -pipe -mcpu=ultrasparc

This is what I used:

[emacs-21.3]$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/sfw --with-x-toolkit=motif \
--with-xpm --with-jpeg --with-tiff --with-gif --with-png --with-x
