Ooops... Now I did it too successfully!

The only wisible thing (for the moment) is a problem with toolbar
rendering. With toolbar switched off gvim seems to work fine. I will use
it and report here if there will be any important problem with such a
build. From my user's point of view that minor disfunction is much
better than completely unusable software!

I will try to create the bugreport for lesstif upstream as soon as I
will have a bit of free time.
