Unfortunately, that package does not contain the 3d widgets. Try:

apt-cache search 3d | grep -i aw

The packages you are interested in are:

xaw3dg - Xaw3d widget set
xaw3dg-dev - Xaw3d widget set development package

I ran intot his when I was trying to build xemacs, but even after adding the --with-site-libraries flag I couldn't get the xemacs configuration to recognize the library as a valid one so I just dropped the athena 3d support from the configure line.
