X itself supports it... all the stuff in /usr/X11R6/include/X11/bitmaps/*
(for example) is owned by xlibs-data.  Unstable's perl uses it, emacs uses
it, xfig uses it, ghostscript uses it, etc.  The functions that support it
are in libX11.

You should only have to install xlibs-dev.  All the supporting functions
have man pages.
