Binaries and libraries are under /usr/X11R6/, but it appears anything that
would be "shared" between potential X-only and non-X versions of the package
should be prefixed in /usr (i.e. man pages should be in /usr/share/man
instead of /usr/X11R6/man or /usr/X11R6/share/man).

Not a fatal flaw (I just removed it from the PPL), but the package still
needs an independent functionality review.
