No, it was a political decision, I think. In this point of view X11 is
a package and belongs to the directory where all the packages
reside. This is /opt for SVR4 unices and /usr/local for BSDs. 
Furthermore I have to correct myself. AIX puts X11 into /usr/lpp/X11,
so this seems to be a package for AIX, this means it seems to be ok
for NetBSD when X11 resides in /usr/local/X11R?.
