Stephen, I'm using the binaries from the Debian-JP project for mule-canna
19.34.  This is from the unstable Debian-JP 1.3 package.  I think
there is also source there which might help you do the install.  I've
also got the Wnn working from Debian-JP 1.3 package.

Yea, there is no reference to mule.  I have to type emacs instead of
mule now.  The fingers have to readjust.

I'm not sure what the XIM protocol is.  Could you give more information
on it's functionality?

Again, if you don't mind using pre-compiled binaries, I would look
at Debian-JP.  Or look through the source for hints.  The Canna files
were pretty straightforward to setup after I read the hints in the
document.  Debian does a nice install of docs in /usr/doc

I use mule (now emacs) a lot and have both Wnn and Canna working.
Canna is 19.34.  I don't have the expertise to compile this type
of thing from source.  However, I can send you a working set of
resource files if you tell me what you need.
