We were having exactly this discussion over on [EMAIL PROTECTED] just
now.

Actually, for a fresh install on a system without any X ports already
installed, you're better off doing this:

    mkdir /usr/X11R6
    sh /usr/ports/Tools/scripts/mergebase.sh

and then carry on installing everything.  Or you can do the following
by hand (which just duplicates the effect mergebase.sh ultimately
has):

    cd /usr
    ln -sf local X11R6
    cd /etc
    echo local_startup="/usr/local/etc/rc.d" >> rc.conf
    echo local_periodic="/usr/local/etc/periodic" >> periodic.conf
    sed -i.save -e '/X11R6/s/^/#/' manpath.config

        Cheers,

        Matthew
