They normally get installed with the X11 dev packages. No?

Graeme, you can also use SDL as a portable windowing system. The
upside is you get a lot of flexibility with the passing of events (eg:
you can pass it down the widget tree) . The downside is sometimes the
apps look imprisoned inside the SDL window especially in the presence
of a floating tool bar. Pixel though looks great on three major
platforms :)
