I need to run a GUI tool. It runs fine under Ubuntu but when I try to 
run under Arch, it says:

./gmv: error while loading shared libraries: libXp.so.6: cannot open 
shared object file: No such file or directory

Earlier, multiple other libraries were missing too, such as libxt, but I 
was able to install them using pacman. FYI I have enabled [multilib] 
repository in my pacman.conf file.

Pacman says that I have libxp already installed (though there is no 
libxp from multilib repo):

 >pacman -Ss libxp
extra/libxp 1.0.3-1 [installed]
     X11 X Print Library
extra/libxpm 3.5.11-1 [installed]
     X11 pixmap library

Could any body help me figure this out? As per my understanding, my GUI 
tool needs 32-bit libraries. The other libraries that I installed had 
some packages like 'lib32-xyz' from multilib repo. But libxp has no 32 
bit package.
