Will just the libraries suffice or would I need to move the headers as
well? I'm trying the former now; I still had my work files so a make
command will just continue where it left off and re-try the link that

In fact, that has finished by now, and the resulting binary indeed uses
the pkgsrc version of the library, even if I put the old ones back in
/usr/X11R7/lib. I'll try actually running it later when I'm in front of
