Aha. Hmm, which .dylib links are needed. Is it enough to have the one
without an version or do we need to have the major and/or minor ones

Someone should document it, because I don't use that so I don't know
which links needs to be added just for Darwin.

I know that part, but as I said above I didn't know about the Darwin only

Btw, we should rework how x11-links works, so we don't need to update x11-links
everytime a new library or version of it appears.

Why don't we just link lib and include from /usr/X11R6 to /usr/pkg/share/x11-links?
