Typically xmkmf will generate a Makefile that includes -I/usr/X11R6/include
on the cc command line. That's why it's not been a problem. If it's
a problem on a particular machine, you can always symlink
/usr/include/X11 -> /usr/X11R6/include/X11.
The /usr/pkg/include thing is a bit trickier to deal with. Should
something like the /pkg -> / symlink thing become available, that
would solve it since the include files would just end up in
/usr/include. Those that wanted them separate would have to add a
-I to their cc command lines.
