Maybe the Xprt binary has a different name? Or the Xprt server is
included within the normal Xserver (HPUX does it that way).

AFAIK no, at least older releases from xprint.mozdev.org have binary
packages for AIX, only for the 009.xxx release series the AIX platform
is still missing.

My first suggestion would be to wait for Roland Mainz (who is busy
with X Consortium work right now) or Tanja Pradetch (who knows the AIX
platform details better than I do).
