Well, installing things under ${X11BASE} defeats the purpose of
xpkgwedge if it is installed, so I don't think I want to forcibly
install the config files in ${X11BASE}.  What could be done is
installing the config files under ${PREFIX}/lib/X11/config so that if
xpkgwedge is _not_ installed, then `xmkmf -a' would work correctly.
However, `xvmkmf -a' would _always_ work correctly.
