Hi Juan,

I don't know if you've examined the xfree-4.2.1 package I've submitted to
tech-pkg some time ago, which never was commited to pkgsrc.

Looks like we've done some duplicate efforts ;)

Anyways, here's a few questions:

- can your XFree package(s) be installed under ${LOCALBASE}, or in
  ${LOCALBASE}/X11 for instance ?

- can you explain inshort why it won't work with x11-links ?
