Have you rebooted since installing? There is a library cache loader that
you need to run every time you add a shared library (which is
run at startup, thus my question) which is called ldconfig (I think),
normally run (at least on sun-lamp) from /etc/rc.local.

Get "macbsd.cf" off of acm.vt.edu, in pub/NetBSD_Mac/X11R6 (instructions
in README.macbsd.cf); I don't think xmkmf works properly with the
setup I provided, which was missing macbsd.cf.
