  (#103218) Overrule mpich's broken build system to get datadir set to
  /usr/share/mpich. Also, add dependency on libX11 or virtual/x11 for
  cxgraphics and cpi_anim. I'm open to patches to stop building them and
  prevent the X dependency. In addition, change 'make' to 'emake' to allow
  parallel builds.
