It is okay to add extra files. The symlink simply won't be made if the

Re-read your email again. FreeBSD 7 should be Xorg not XFree86. The change

it is, at least that's what it says on installation of FreeBSD. However, pkgsrc for X11_TYPE seems to support either modular or native, the latter one being selected by default on FreeBSD. This choice is probably right, since it's not modular xorg, is it?

should be in the xorg related file not "xfree86". I already see it though.

What made it use "xfree86" on your system? We may need to track that
down instead.

simple: pkgsrc/pkgtools/x11-links/Makefile has

.elif exists(${X11BASE}/lib/X11/config/xorgversion.def)
.  include ""
.  include ""

so /usr/X11R6/lib/x11/config does not exist on the stock FreeBSD installation, so it defaults to include Do you think this is incorrect? Should it rather use (even though X11_TYPE is native, which is not checked here anyway)?

We could change

.elif exists(${X11BASE}/lib/X11/config/xorgversion.def)


.elif exists(${X11BASE}/lib/X11/config/xorgversion.def) || exists($ {X11BASE}/bin/xorgconfig)

Other items to trigger for could be the following directories:


What do you think would be the correct approach?
