Ok, this is because the Linux machine has native X.org, 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/x11.buildlink3.mk never gets to x11/libX11/builtin.mk;
it goes only to x11-links's builtin.mk; that doesn't set
IS_BUILTIN.libX11; and thus, xorg.mk 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.
