Rebuilding Inventor against motif requires switching
mesa-libGLw and Inventor to motif, i.e. a chain build consisting of
mesa-libGLw and Inventor.

As Inventor seems to be the only user of mesa-libGLw, this should be 
pretty harmless.

Unless somebody objects, I am going to rebuild these 2 packages for fc23 


PS.: derelict-GL3-devel also claims to require mesa-libGLw, but I can
not spot any actual source-code nor object dependency beween GLw nor
Xm. I therefore am inclined to believe this to be a packaging bug in
