It's not only the header files, but is also the .so symlink.
The libXaw3d.so.VERSION are for already existing binaries to use.
To create new binaries, you need a libXaw3d.so file, which is usually
a symlink to one of the ones with version.

But the symlink will usually be in the same package as the header files,
so if you install the correct package for the headers, you will most
likely also have the needed symlink.
