pkgsrc crams all packages that use X into /usr/X11R6 by default,
regardless of whether the package actually needs to go there or
even installs there by default. I do not know why.
You can work around this by installing pkgtools/xpkgwedge, whose
express purpose is changing that default so that all packages are
installed to LOCALBASE (/usr/pkg by default) instead. I do not
know why this is not the default.
