no and i think that may be part of the problem. within the Makefile
I was able to add -R${XROOT} (which the author has set to /usr/X11R6).

I wonder if setting up a configure script for it (in the distribution)
might not be wiser. Then (hopefull) the configure script will know
where to find the proper libs.

I dunno, it has been a long time since I setup one of those.

Also the reason I have posted this to tech-x11 is I want to try running
oroborus for a bit before putting a package together.

This might also be a case where working directly with the author(s)
might be better.
