Nhat Minh Lê has kindly sent a fix that works for me: in
/usr/X11R7/lib/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8/XI18N_OBJS change the line

XIM     common/ximcp            _XimOpenIM

to read

XIM     common/ximcp            _XimOpenIM      
_XimRegisterIMInstantiateCallback       _XimUnRegisterIMInstantiateCallback

(all on one line), and then restart the X server.  Of course, you'll
have to adjust the path to XI18N_OBJS to match your locale.  The
modified entry causes libX11 to load and make available the newer
(X11R6) callback-based API for XIM, which emacs expects.

If this works for you as well, then I'll file a PR requesting that the
change be made for all pertinent locales in xsrc.
