X11 might be nice to have as a pkg, but that's unfortunately not the current
setup of things.

There's _no_ way to fix this for fonts beyond hacking xsrc a bit more than
to add a path, and that does not work for 1.3.x xsrc sets.

You don't install a $LOCALBASE-based pkg; the install will barf about a
needed dependency. You install an $X11BASE based pkg.
(Remember that xpkgwedge is optional when building stuff: even if xpkgwedge
is installed, you have to set USE_LOCALBASE_FOR_X11 to get it to do
something in pkgsrc.)
