Oops, sorry. You are correct. There is no libxvthumb.

Everyhing seems to be ok.

Yes, it also happens in my system, too. This is due to a bug that 
the dynlink options of ci_xpm.cma lack -lX11. I did not notice
this bug since I always linked ci_xpm.cma with ci_graphics.cma
together, which links -lX11. I will fix this soon.
