Check if you have libXmu.so.6 in /usr/X11R6/lib.
If you have the file, take a look in /etc/ld.so.conf and add
the path /usr/X11R6/lib in that file.
Than do ldconfig . (just type ldconfig at the prompt.)

If you don't have the file /usr/X11R6/lib/libXmu.so.6
(Do you have any other libXmu files in that directory?)
you have missed something at the installation.
A good place to look for the file is http://ftpsearch.ntnu.no/
