The X dependencies (libxpm and openmotif) are required only for ida and are unused by exiftran
fbgs (shell script around gs + fbi), fbi and fbpdf.

Please make libxpm and openmotif optional "for ida", akin to the existing "ghostscript: for fbgs".

Additional info:
* package version(s)

Steps to reproduce:
- test that exiftran, fbgs, fbi and fbpdf are working fine, with libxpm and openmotif removed
- alternatively, check via objdump -x the above binaries - confirm they don't use libxpm/openmotif
- alternatively, see the build recipe

- GCC 10 builds fail - use
- (Unrelated) GNU make was removed upstream, in favour of the meson build
This task depends upon
