  the real problem is more like "you can't say for sure where LOCALBASE
  will really be".

I didn't think of that.  Two thoughts:

It might be less gross to always include /usr/pkg than to have the
current behavior; this would fix things for many but not all.

We could have the file /etc/X11/LOCALBASE be created by the
installation of xpkgwedge, and have the x libs read that and search
the appropriate places.
