It would require us to check for the run time shared library, and that would
fail anyway if the user is crosscompiling.  Not to mention we don't know what
version to check for.  But if libXpm is not found, I guess we could print out
a warning saying that icons and images will be in black and white and
installation of libxpm-dev(el) or similar would fix this.
