/etc/mtree/BSD.x11.dist has everything marked 755, though, and a quick
grep of /var/db/pkg/*/+MTREE_DIRS on my system only has one
mode-775 directory ( /usr/X11R6/share/gnome/games ).
My guess is that at some point, a port or manual install on your system
chmod'ed X11R6/lib/, and every port installed after that recorded the
wrong permissions in their mtree file. If "grep 775
/var/db/pkg/*/+MTREE_DIRS" lists a bunch of lines, you might be able to
sed them back to normal with something like
sed -i .bak -e 's/mode=0775/mode=0755/' /var/db/pkg/*/_MTREE_DIRS
A hack until you get the permissions worked out would be to add
ldconfig_insecure="yes" to /etc/rc.conf, which will make
/etc/rc.d/ldconfig add the -i flag when it runs ldconfig.
