Re: install/35450 (sysinst sets PATH= ... /usr/X11R6/bin - users installing Xorg have trouble)

The default PATH includes, in this order of preference:
- base X.Org
- base XFree86
- /usr/pkg/bin (which counts as "pkgsrc X.Org")

As long as you only have one of these collections installed at a time, 
the default PATH does the right thing no matter what.  Using your
example of installing the system without the X11 sets, there will be
no binaries in /usr/X11R7/bin or /usr/X11R6/bin, so after installing
pkgsrc X.Org, the only X binary you'll get is the one in /usr/pkg/bin.

In addition, changing /etc/skel/ is something that is best left to
the admin, and we definitely don't want to go down the road of modifying
existing ~/.profile files.
