I think you don't need to bother about recompiling it yourself (from 
memory, you need to explicilty provide the motif/lesstif path with -I 
and -L), since packages are available for redhat/fedora, as you can see 
on rpmfind:

You can find it on fedora extras.
As a sidenote, you'll also find it precompiled on Mandriva, in the 
contrib section.
