I don't know what type and versions of X you have your IRIX.
It is possible that the libXScrnSaver just can't be easily forced to use
dependencies from your native X.
Some solutions are:
- get the builtin.mk (via pkgsrc buildlinking) to generate .pc files
temporarily as needed per build. This is hard to do since we need to
detect various features to see if native library and headers are even
- get x11-links to pre-generate .pc files and include them with the
x11-links install. (Same argument as above.)
- Use environment variables for various *_CFLAGS and *_LIBS when running
./configure in pkgsrc build to skip the pkg-config checks. This is
probably not a good idea, as it is hard to maintain, and takes away the
convenience of checking for correct versions.
- use X11_TYPE=modular and use the X.org as included in pkgsrc (and you
can still use your native X server on your desktop).
You may want to ask on pkgsrc-users to see what other IRIX users are doing
for packages that need X.
