I don't know if it is an error so much as something that I have been 
struggling with.  There is a general consensus in the X community that 
/usr/X11R6 needs to just go away.  I am trying to put as few new things 
there as necessary (if a package can be used at all without X, then it 
doesn't need to be there, IMHO).  Now, the real question is whether I 
made a conscious decision to root the package in /usr versus just 
forgetting to change it to /usr/X11R6?  I can't recall doing either of 
these... so I really can't say if I was being strong minded or forgetful :)
