 I didn't know that. When I looked at one of my NetBSD box which doesn't have X base set
 # uname -rsv
 NetBSD 9.0 NetBSD 9.0 (XEN3_DOMU) #0: Fri Feb 14 00:06:28 UTC 2020
 I seen
 # ls /usr/X11R7
 ls: /usr/X11R7: No such file or directory

 I'm not necessarily in favor of an autoselect method. I'd rather be for an error message to be printed if X11_TYPE=native and /usr/X11R7 is empty.
