This issue occurs on Solaris, there is no base X11. Pkgsrc is using
modular Xorg packages as dependencies - meaning I didn't install Xorg
to begin with, I did "bmake package" in net/tigervnc and let pkgsrc
figure out all required dependencies. So x11/xauth was missing and
looks like it needs to be added as an explicit dependency.
