I am packaging defendguin game (because my son keeps asking me).

The build dies with:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXv

This comes from "sdl-config --libs".

$ sdl-config --libs
-L/usr/pkg/lib -Wl,-R/usr/pkg/lib -Wl,-rpath,/usr/pkg/lib -Wl,-rpath,/lib
-lSDL -lpthread -L/usr/pkg/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -Wl,-R/usr/X11R6/lib
-Wl,-R/usr/pkg/lib -lm -L/usr/pkg/lib -Wl,-R/usr/pkg/lib -lesd -laudiofile
-lm -lossaudio -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lX11 -lXext -lXxf86vm -lXxf86dga -lXv
-lXinerama -laa -lusbhid

I have SDL-1.2.3nb2.

$ ls -l /usr/X11R6/lib/libXv.*
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  10750 Sep  8 05:58 /usr/X11R6/lib/libXv.a

I don't see any packages proving (other than via suse rpm).

Any ideas?
