so it looks like Apple made that change when going from 10.4 to 10.5.

yes, MacOS is installed on a HFS+ filesystem, which should be default for MacOS

well, it does shed some light, but still things remain unclear to me.
It seems that starting with 10.5, MacOS no longer comes with 
/usr/X11R6/include/X11/bitmaps/stipple, which is what pkgsrc expects to symlink 
Do we need to adapt pkgtools/x11-links?
