I built Vim fine with that.  Simply changing the lesstif2-dev
Build-Depends to lesstif-dev and rebuilding provided a package that I
was able to use.  I'm not sure what the functional differences between
lesstif1 and lesstif2 are, though.  I'd rather lesstif2 be fixed or have
someone knowledgeable about lesstif1/lesstif2 let us know whether there
will be any drawbacks if we were to switch to lesstif1.
