Unidata McIDAS builds with C and Fortran 77 on the platform you note.
Motif is not needed by McIDAS.  Information on operating system support
for Vis5D can be found in the Vis5D home page:

Unidata provides McIDAS to educational institutions mostly in WMO Region
IV.  I believe that the Metereological Institute of Greece is already
licensed by SSEC for their version of McIDAS.  Unidata McIDAS is a
superset of SSEC McIDAS: it contains modifications and additions that
we feel are beneficial to Unidata participants.

It is probably better for you to contact SSEC directly (address@hidden)
since the Met. Inst. is already one of their sites.  If you represented
university interests, we could talk further about them becoming Unidata

I hope that this helped somewhat.
