This means that you don't have the XawM library.

Same problem again.

Yes. Any of Xaw, XawM, XawXpm, neXtaw, Xaw95 or Xaw3d work with Mowitz and
Siag (from a technical point of view; the appearance may leave something
to be desired).

XawM used to come bundled with Siag and some widgets in Siag were
subclassed from XawM widgets, but that is no longer the case. So as long
as the API is compatible on a source level, no problem.
