There is always a VM package in XEmacs, but I can't say how old it might be.
XEmacs/VM users are even more passive than Gnu Emacs/VM users.  There is
nobody willing to take the time to package up a current VM for XEmacs.  What
can I say?

If VM is an important part of your life (it something like 20-50% of my
life), then you want to have total control over which VM version you use and
how it is installed.  The only way to get such control is to install it
yourself.  You cannot depend on somebody else to do it, especially when they
are all unpaid volunteers contributing their spare time.
