Gavan F. told me that my fix for my PR #22927 is wrong for systems that
have fonts in X11BASE when X11PREFIX is different (like xpkgwedge under

Sorry for breaking this for xpkgwedge users.

I didn't notice because on my system with X11PREFIX same as LOCALBASE, I
also had my XFree86 (and its fonts) installed there too.

Is it okay if I just use X11BASE instead of X11PREFIX?

-CONFIGURE_ARGS+=	--with-add-fonts=${X11PREFIX}/lib/X11/fonts/TTF,${X11PREFIX}/lib/X11/fonts/Type1
+CONFIGURE_ARGS+=	--with-add-fonts=${X11BASE}/lib/X11/fonts/TTF,${X11BASE}/lib/X11/fonts/Type1

Or should I have it check something like the following?

.if (${LOCALBASE} == ${X11PREFIX}) && (${X11BASE} != ${LOCALBASE})
CONFIGURE_ARGS+= --with-add-fonts=${X11BASE}/lib/X11/fonts/TTF,${X11BASE}/lib/X11/fonts/Type1
CONFIGURE_ARGS+= --with-add-fonts=${X11PREFIX}/lib/X11/fonts/TTF,${X11PREFIX}/lib/X11/fonts/Type1
