I don't think that's true:
Maintainer: Martin Buck <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Depends: libc6, xlib6g (>= 3.3-5)
Conflicts: xview (<< 3.2p1.4-1)
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

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.
