I have only "/usr/X11R7/*" files.  Any old version
was removed some time ago.  The "x11-links" package was rebuilt well
after the removal.

I saw that and only the bit about old libraries jumped out at me, so
I made a point to check my sparc install's /usr/X11R7/lib.

Now, the main point I see is the use of "PREFER.fontconfig=pkgsrc" and

As I didn't need these on i386/amd64-current, I wasn't expecting to need
them on sparc-current.  I suppose that's the next thing to try.

I was going to assert that my i386/amd64-current installs were in the
same state as the sparc-current installs, but checking reveals that
while they do NOT have old "*" libs, they DO have old
"{7,17}.* files that are not picked up by the "obsolete"
check in 'postinstall'.

I should note this is pkgsrc-2018Q1 and thus x11-links-1.10.
