If you want to only use pkgsrc programs with pkgsrc libraries, then you don't 
need this step.  However, if you want to use non-pkgsrc programs with pkgsrc 
libraries, then you do need this step, as I found out a week ago.  I was using 
a non-pkgsrc program that needed the X and GTK2 libraries, and I wanted to use 
the libraries I installed from pkgsrc.  I kept getting "Shared Object 
not found" errors until I performed this step, after which the program worked 
just fine.
