I'm not really a fan, but I can't really argue against this.

I'd adjust the wording to:

  X11_TYPE=native but xbase set is not installed.  Either set X11_TYPE to modular or install xbase."

because "native x11 distribution cannot be used" is hard to follow if
you don't even know this exists, and with X11_TYPE at least you can grep
for it.
