The sunpro C++ stuff will be needed by proprietary (licensed) software
compiled with Sun Studio, as that will definitely fail with g++ compiled

Motif is still needed for some applications, but isn't there OpenMotif ? I
faintly remember I installed it from some illumos or OI or CSW repository
a few weeks ago somewhere, so that can probably go.

libXaw is still needed, but again, freedesktop.org has a free alternative.

CDE is dead, and people that used it should be, too (I feel sick...).

libowconfig....oh my god, OpenWindows, olwm ? When CDE people are dead,
OW people should already be rotten long ago. But I see that it has
been accessed 5 days ago on my 151a9 machine, so seemingly some of
the X libraries still accesses it (definitely not a backup process).

SUNWxwinc/plt are just Meta-incorporation packages for Xwindows
application groups; useful as such, they may be renamed and kept.
Or isn't there something similar already ?
