I asked last month about why I see some window managers not installing
under X11BASE. (It appears like the tech-pkg archive still has not been
fixed and is missing that thread.) I believe my question prompted
improvements to Packages.txt.

The doc now says "Usually, X11 packages should be installed under
LOCALBASE whenever possible."

I'd like to do the oppposite.

Is there any pkgsrc-wide option I can set in my /etc/mk.conf to make
packages that have USE_X11 defined (like wm/icewm) to install under my

I'd like my X clients to all install under X11BASE (which is /usr/X11R6).

Thank you,
