Just to note, this is just a work-around for the PKG_DEVELOPER ldd checks
when installing using pkgsrc.

This doesn't happen when using binary packages (unless I am missing
something somewhere else) -- which is fine, because:

- The problem is that some of the X libraries don't have RPATH defined to
know where some of their needed X libraries.

- Nevertheless, the clients and software (installed from XFree86-*
packages and othert pkgsrc packages) do have the RPATH correctly set so
they can use the various X libraries fine.
