I'll have a look. But are we supporting Emacs as an external widget,
    that is can be compiled into other applications like any other Xt
    widget, or is it just for Emacs internally?

I don't know whether it tries to be an external widget.

After inspection, it does not look like it is possible to use it like that.

I believe Emacs needs this merely to work with Xt at all.

Yes and no.  For Lesstif/Motif/Athena there are DrawingArea type widgets
one can use, but for Lucid it is needed.  One idea I am contemplating
is to make a drawing area widget for Lucid in lwlib, and then we can
mostly discard the stuff in widget.c and instead use the drawing area
as just any X window (like the GTK port does).  This should reduce
the amount of code a bit.  There may be issues with toolbar and/or
menubar, I haven't looked at that yet.
