No, the motif libs are not free, but they are shipped  with most
development systems; they may be in a nonstandard place (what platform do
you have?).  If you really don't have them, you can still use MOTIF if the
executable is statically linked to the executable (much larger file size
but it works).  But you still have to find someone who will do it for
you.  If you have an SGI, I might be able to do it for you, or you could
ask the developers of the pkg to put a statically linked exe on their ftp
site for you.
