Re: X11R7 & man.conf

Does the patch below make any sense? Or should we handle X11R7 there?

No.  It should be the reverse order, because people upgrading a system
to X.Org won't get the XFree86 files obsoleted, so the X11R7 search
paths must come before X11R6.

True, I've appended an update below.

There are still many more such changes pending, but I have troubles with
postinstall(8) itself.

You're probably right that there are many more places that need adjusting for X11R7, but we have to start somewhere, no? Is there some bigger plan for this? If not, I'll fix things as I come across them (see e.g. the fix for sshd to find xauth, which I've committed a few weeks ago).
