I have two Mac mini (servers), and had upgraded the older one from
Snow Leopard to Mavericks last winter (more or less uneventful).
Noticing a comment about Yosemite, I upgraded the newer one from
Mountain Lion to Mavericks.  On this upgrade, I found problems
getting the configure script to find the ICE library.  The cause
was that in the upgrade, reinstall of XQuartz, etc, the newer one
has a different directory layout than the other (though one would
assume they'd be identical).

The difference is that the problematic one has an actual /usr/X11
directory (with xstub's rather than real libraries), while the other
has a symbolic link to /opt/X11.

(I haven't redone that yet - have other things to keep me busy, and it was
a useful test-case...).
