I can't claim to know all or even just "a lot of" packages, but I don't
know of any package that would install in /usr/X11R6 if xpkgwedge is not
installed and which does not "need" to be there (for very good reasons,
even if those reasons don't always apply in all scenarios).
Can you please provide an example of such a package?
