Agreed. IMHO imake and xmkmf should be together with their config files...
i.e in the xdevel package. 

1. They're only used when compiling x binaries.

2. Getting a 'xmkmf: file not found' will probably get users thinking "I
need an x development package". Getting a failed xmkmf run will most
probably get the users thinking 'bug!'.

Maybe you'd care to file this as a bug against xbase?
