I really don't know what to say to this.  You are wrong.  I
suppose you have not checked or checked so long ago you have
forgotten.  None of the apps i've been talking about need to be
in /usr/X11R6, and not one of them installs there.  The only way
these packages end up in /usr/X11R6 is because pkgsrc forces them
