According to pkgstats not many people do so (0.13 %).

Cite: "Just replace libXaw.* or libXaw3d.* with libneXtaw.so.?.? and make all symlinks
that were pointing to libXaw point to libneXtaw "

That means to me, the user has to manually set symlinks, an if he is able to
understand this and to do so, he should also be able to compile from a PKGBUILD in AUR.
