Hello Doug,

Sorry for the belated answer, I hit the hay in the meantime... but now,
good morning to everybody outta there:-)

OK I think I nailed it:-) I took a trip to the /var/db/pkg directory, it
was very educational:-)

/var/db/pkg/linux_base-6.1/+CONTENTS, the offending line in my installled

@exec ln -sf ../X11R6/lib/X11 %D/usr/lib/X11
@unexec rm %D/usr/lib/X11

But the port that actually did something to that directory was
linux_devtools. It puts the config directory for X11 there. So you may very
much be correct... unless you install linux_devtools, there may be no
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11 directory at all.

So short workaround: install linux_devtools:-)
Long workaround: Take a long hard look at what's going on before posting to
say that *it works for me* /*note to myself */ 

Solution: ? ( Maybe create the directory once we symlink to it? Seems like
a good idea... ) 

(Most probably this problem never surfaced before because the maintainers
had both ports installed on their systems.)

Luckily, the date on the directories tipped me off, since I installed the
devtools port only two days later...

No, only Netscape, RP, Flash plugin and linux-jdk are linux apps on my
system (oh yes and that unwieldy beast, Star Office) all from ports, except
for RP which I downloaded quite some time ago and installed by hand and had
no reason to upgrade ever since... but most of these do not put anything
under the /usr/compat/linux/ hierarchy at all, but rather prefer

Using it right now:-) Good line quality from Charleston, SC.
