Chuck's report does not relate to the DDD Makefiles - `make' is never
called, but to the invocation of DDD `configure'.  To fix this, I need:

* the exact error message, as listed in the `config.log'
  and `ddd/config.log' files.

* the `configure' invocation, as listed in the `config.status' file.

Please reply soon, such that fixes (if needed) can make it into DDD 3.3.

I don't know how Suhaib can assume there's something I haven't read :-)
Yes, I have read the LessTif FAQ, and the DDD Makefile has since been
fixed to work with Cygwin (as of DDD 3.2.98 and later).  Here's the
library ordering on my system:

    -lXm -lXaw -lXmu -lXt -lXpm -lXp -lXext \
        -lX11 -lSM -lICE -lncurses -liberty -lm

Compare this to the ordering as specified in the LessTif FAQ - you'll
find it's perfectly compliant:

    -lMrm -lXm -lXt -lXmu -lXp -lXext -lX11 -lSM -lICE

Remember: for a bug report, always state what you do, what you expect,
and how your experience differs from the expectations.  Anything else,
including assumptions about the code and its developers, rarely helps.
