Re: building with native X11 type on FreeBSD - pkgconfig dir and pkgtools/x11-links

Returning to the USE_BUILTIN approach, I wonder if it could be possible to
make a port that would function in some ways similar to pkgtools/x11-links

everything it needs from the host libraries and host includes for gettext
and libiconv support, then maybe it could work out under USE_BUILTIN in the
buildlink support.

That's how buildlink already works. If you have a platform where IS_BUILTIN.* is "no" when you think it should be "yes" then it's likely we're just missing some additional logic in the relevant files.

x11-links is an historical wart, and long-term we should be looking to ditch it and convert everything over to regular buildlink3, not the other way around.
