No. libXpm is used for reading/writing images in the XPM format
(similar to gif, jpg, png, etc., but unlike those, XPM does not
compress the image data, but instead embiggens it by converting to ASCII).

LBX support was removed from the X server in xorg-server-1.2.
xcb is an entirely different/unrelated technology - it's not an X
protocol extension like LBX, but the client side of an X protocol
implementation - eventually planning to replace libX11.
