Yes, I think so too. I plan to release xcin-2.5.2 soon (I hope so).
At this stage (maybe in the near future) xcin will itself contain
the IMdkit part, so it will contain the Makefile.in. But if there
are any new IMdkit upgration, I will also upgrade the copy in xcin.
I will wait for a while when everything seems settle down, then
actually saparate IMdkit from xcin.
But for the release/development of IMdkit in SoureForge, I think
this should be a good idea to keep the original Imakefile. I hope
that finally XFree86 can officially maintain IMdkit.
Besides, for a stand along IMdkit package, the shared lib building
should be opened (currectly in xcin it always build the static
lib). Further, should we have another mailing list to discuss IMdkit
