I'm not about to rebuild dozens of X11 programs just to provide such
When Gentoo underwent the /usr/X11R6 -> /usr transition a few years
back, they made the /usr/X11R6/ directory a symlink to /usr.
Unfortunately I was unable to do the same because other packages not
technically part of X11 were still using the obsolete prefix, so it
wouldn't necessarily have been empty after the upgrade.
