as trivial as compiling PBMPLUS/NetPBM that way
If you use current Netpbm this is not a compilation option; it always handles both 8 bit and 16 bit PPMs.
But I suspect xv doesn't use the Pbmplus/Netpbm libraries. Most programs don't -- they just interpret the PPM format (or, usually, some subset of the PPM format) with private code.
