I'm maintaining the gnuboy package, and submitted the last version update
(to gnuboy 1.0.3).  Someone emailed me saying that gnuboy was building
without properly linking to the x11 libraries.  I had recently upgraded to
NetBSD 1.6.1, and when I tried building gnuboy, it failed to build,
complaining about not being able to find the x11 headers.

I added "USE_X11= yes" to the Makefile and that fixed it for me, but
aparently didn't help for him.  (I got that from a hint in

My two questions:
1. does gnuboy build for others?
2. any idea why USE_X11 would work for me & not him?
