The XPM plug-in needs libxpm. As far as I can remember there is a
version of libxpm that does not depend on X11. I have no idea why the
Windows installer doesn't include this library and the xpm plug-in.

May I ask why you want to write XPM at all? There are certainly nicer
ways to include images with your source code. With the exception of
one or two plug-ins, we completely eliminated the use of XPM from The
GIMP source code. Images are now either loaded on demand using
gdk_pixbuf_new_from_file() or we use a compiled-in version generated
using gdk-pixbuf-csource. The main advantage of this approach is that
a true alpha channel can be used which is not possible with XPM.
