No idea.

Probably because it isn't there.  It's somewhere on the web,
presumably.  I just did `locate' and it was in the XEmacs file tree.
Of course, if it really turned out to be needed, one should check back
with WP that this is ok as a contribution to Emacs proper (for which
he has an assignment on file, but not for gpm.el specifically).
