Not without a lot of reworking, which is not likely (nor desirable)
this close to branching 5.0.
I would just add the appropriate /usr/X11R7 directories to the
NetBSD.dist (a la /usr/X11R6), and if/when we implement a
mechanism to allow optional directory creation in that system,
we can switch to it then.
OK. that's the easy way too!

* Make MKX11!=no and MKXORG!=no mutually exclusive.
This is a larger issue in the build system, and requires
a bit of work to implement.
(It would also prevent other problems seen by yourself and
rtr@ during the testing of external/mit/xorg recently)
* Modify sets.subr to support "x11" and "xorg" tags
* Reuse the lists/x* files; add "x11" tag to the existing paths,
and "xorg" to new files installed by your new infrastructure.
yes - that was my idea too, hopefully with no to minimal
changes to the sets infrastructure itself.
thanks for your reply.
