That surprise me a little. They've already packed their XFree and build=20
against external versions of freetype2/fontconfig, so they should not face=20
the same issues we do. And they somewhat easier position since they only=20
support one OS (and XFree installation as port). We however need to support =
an already X11 installation. That could be xsrc, vender versions of XFree=20
(Linux distributions, FreeBSD, ..), openwin, .. (and maybe at some time a=20
pkgsrc X11 distribution).

Cool, than we could import the missing bits into pkgsrc.

I'd like to split that up a bit further like: X11_TYPE and X11_EXTENSIONS =
(native, pkgsrc). With defaults to "native" for X11_TYPE and "pkgsrc" for=20
