I'm trying to compile X11-related packages on my IRIX 5.3 system. Most
of the time, when imake is used to generate the Makefile, this still
fails. pkgsrc/x11/xwit is a typical example:
bmake: don't know how to make /usr/local/pkg/lib/ Stop

The respective lines in the Makefile are:

X11_ROOT = /usr

ROOT seems to be empty.
bmake show-vars VARNAMES=PREFIX yields /usr/local/pkg, is at /usr/lib/ or, as a link created by
x11-links, at ${LOCALBASE}/share/x11-links/lib/

Which settings do I have to adjust in order to make the X11 libs being
