Actually, I had no intent of doing that and as far as I can tell I have nothing in the configuration that would do so.  Indeed, the configuration hasn’t changed.  I just decided to do a pkg_rolling-replace to test the soon-to-be 2016Q2 packages that I normally have installed.  To do that I simply upgraded to the current pkgsrc and ran pkg_rolling-replace -suv.

What should I be looking at that would have created a mix and how do I avoid that?

I believe in the past I have always used native X11, which is what I think I am using now.  However, it is clear that native X11 in 7.0.1 does not provide all the symbols required by  some packages.  Does that mean I should be using pkgsrc X11 exclusively?
