Patch worked. Attached are the two new files. Thanks.

I had to use "--enable-rpath=/usr/local/lib" with configure so that "ddd" could find libXm.so.

Also, there seems to be quite a lot of warnings.

(file #17536, file #17537, file #17538, file #17539)

Looking again, it seems lesstif is not the problem. We are directly including the Motif private headers XmP.h from our "ScrolleGEP.h". In that case one small patch should do it. Does ddd.extern_C.patch work?

(file #17520)

Well, that's interesting. There is no extern "C" {} or _XFUNCPROTOBEGIN/END around the declarations in your VendorP.h

My Ubuntu system has _XFUNCPROTOBEGIN/END around these declarations. But looking at the source this appears to be an Ubuntu patch not in the upstream.

I think in an ideal world there would be no need for the patched libXt, because lesstif should not expose the contents of the "*P.h" headers (the P stands for "private", after all).

However, I think we could fix DDD for all platforms by putting extern "C" {} around all the Motif headers just in case. Ugly but safe.

libXt is 1.0.5 from fedora

lesstif is 0.95.0-1 (lesstif-0.95.0.tar.bz2) from, I think, http://www.lesstif.org

I wrote some unintended Savane markup. I meant, can you report the results of:
Also, the contents of /usr/include/X11/VendorP.h would be interesting.

This is a duplicate of https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?24874.

Its a bug in libXt (so, it would in theory affect any C++ application which used Lesstif. However, DDD is the only one which matches that description...)

I'm very surprised it still happens on Fedora 10 though. What versions of libXt and of Motif (lesstif) are you using? Did you get them from the Fedora repositories or elsewhere?

rpm -qf /usr/lib/libXt.so. /usr/lib/libXm.so.
