Having stepped into the usual snare of GTK dependencies, I thought I'd
experiment with mksandbox. I'm having a little trouble with X:
/usr/X11R6 on /usr/sandbox/usr/X11R6 type null (local, read-only)
and Packages.txt's advice to "make sure you install X".
The package I'm trying to build is editors/manedit, a GTK package that
obviously needs X. The GTK+ package tries to install itself to /usr/X11R6
and fails of course, preventing the build.
What's the proper course here? Do I undo the null mount, get the
distribution sets for X, and untar them while in /usr/sandbox?
I don't have an X server on this machine; I would think I need only the X
