I don't think that's true:

Package: xviewg
Priority: optional
Section: x11
Installed-Size: 1836
Maintainer: Martin Buck <mbuck@debian.org>
Architecture: i386
Source: xview
Version: 3.2p1.4-2
Replaces: xview
Depends: libc6, xlib6g (>= 3.3-5)
Conflicts: xview (<< 3.2p1.4-1)
Filename: dists/unstable/main/binary-i386/x11/xviewg_3.2p1.4-2.deb

MD5sum: b88bce4662cc64449e4e2c535857d8f6
Description: XView shared libraries [libc6]
 This package contains the shared libraries for XView.
 XView is a user interface toolkit following the look and feel of
 Sun's pre-X11 SunView.
 This package is required by XView-based programs.

So at least Debian has the libc6 versions ;-)

You could try to convert the debian package with alien or just grab
the debian sources and diffs and build it. If you have problems I am
willing to help you.

BTW I still think that the current license without any appendices or
special permission _doesn't_ allow us to even distribute the binaries
of mupad.

What's the railroad to me ?
I never go to see
Where it ends.
It fills a few hollows,
And makes banks for the swallows, 
It sets the sand a-blowing,
And the blackberries a-growing.
