 Ok, this is because the Linux machine has native, and in
 x11-links, libX11 appears in files/xfree but not in files/xorg; it
 only appears in files/xorg.libX11. But the latter is not used, because
 the logic in mk/ never gets to x11/libX11/;
 it goes only to x11-links's; that doesn't set
 IS_BUILTIN.libX11; and thus, doesn't use files/xorg.libX11,
 and libX11 doesn't get processed.
 (And neither do assorted other X libs.)
 It is not clear to me what ought to be done to correct this, but
 hopefully someone will read this who knows how things ought to work.
