Answer: Motif 2.1 can be compiled to be thread-safe (if libX11 and libXt are
also compiled to be thread-safe).

Motif releases prior to Motif 2.1 were not thread-safe.  In these releases,
you can use Motif from one thread and do other things in other threads but you
cannot call Motif functions from more than one thread.

Try looking in the X FAQ for information on threads:
