MacPorts does not use -devel ports for this purpose. (MacPorts -devel  
ports serve an unrelated purpose, of giving you access to the latest  
development version of a port, rather than the latest stable  
version.) All MacPorts ports should already include the headers you  

According to "port contents lesstif" I see that Xm.h has been  
installed into /usr/X11R6/include/Xm/Xm.h

That's on Tiger anyway. On Leopard it might be in /usr/X11/include/Xm/ 
Xm.h but "port contents lesstif" will tell you for sure.
