 I know X is a mess, but I don't see that it's really different from
 needing a new-enough version of any other package... if the pkgsrc
 libXau needs a newer libX11 than the builtin one it should go ahead
 and build the libX11 from pkgsrc and nothing should get mixed. It's
 possible that we might want X11_TYPE==native to explicitly fail this;
 but then you'd get a sane error message out.
