Package xmuu was not found in the pkg-config search path

The configure script for a small program (xpr, but I don't think
it matters) is failing with the complaint that pkg-config finds
no evidence of xmuu on my system. As xmuu appears to be a recently-added
piece of XFree86, and as I am running Xorg in any case, I do not
dispute the finding. But I cannot figure out how to install xmuu,
or otherwise satisfy the configure script that xpr can be compiled
without it. Asking search engines to locate xmuu is fruitful: many
pages on the World Wide Web are located purporting to contain the
xmuu distribution. A typical search result, for example, would be
However, this page, and other similar pages, contain no links to any
actual source code, only to an Imakefile and to a file called Xmuu-def.cpp.
This, the search engine results do not inform me how to obtain the
xmuu library. Can you help with this? Alternately, can you locate
xpr source that does not depend on xmuu? If you do not think that this
topic is of general interest, please write back to
Thank you in advance for your reply.

The source for Xorg X Windows can always be found at their website. xmuu is provided by the library libXmu.
