Hi, the package that creates x11-links on SPARC Solaris does not include 
all the necessary links. I was compiling x11/kdebase3 and it failed with 
the following error:

ld: fatal: library -lXau: not found
ld: fatal: File processing errors. No output written to 
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
gmake[3]: *** [] Error 1
gmake[3]: Leaving directory 

I looked under /opt/pkg/share/x11-links/lib and there were no symbolic 
links to /usr/openwin/lib/ files.

So creating symbolic links by hand to /usr/openwin/lib/{,} under


fixed the compilation problem.

My question is: do I need to submit a PR or will the mainainer of 
x11-links package fix the issue after reading this email?
