Just an idea (that will probably get shot down in flames)...

Is it worth changing the gcc/egcs specs so that /usr/pkg/include (and
perhaps /usr/X11R6/include?) get searched for includes, and the relevent
lib directories for libraries?  One obvious problem is if someone
changes ${LOCALBASE}.

I guess it's a question of high tightly integrated we want the package
(and X11?) stuff.  One of the things I liked about the "old way" X
used to work on some systems was how it had the includes installed in
/usr/include/X11 and not some separate sub-directory...
