Sorry for the crossposting, but I'm not sure where the problem lies.

I may have things misconfigured (again) but ssh is looking for xauth in
/usr/X11R6 which, on my system, is a link to /usr/pkg/xorg.
Unfortunately, all my xorg stuff seems to be mixed into the usual
/usr/pkg hierarchy without the extra xorg directory. The symlink seems
to be /usr/X11R6 -> /usr/pkg.

This breaks X forwarding using ssh.

If anyone else sees this, I'll send a pr.
