15 Hi,
16 /usr/X11/ is a link to ../usr and belongs to "x11-base/xorg-x11" not
17 xorg-server (all ~x86 system here). All this with modular-X.
18 For more info check: x-modular.eclass & xorg-server/xorg-x11 ebuilds.
19 IMHO this could be done using EXTRA_ECONF"--suffix=/usr/X11" emerge ...
20 -a (check the syntax here).
21 But using this only for one/two packages probably will break
22 compatibility with the other xorg sub-packages (unless quite a number of
23 additional links/hacks are made).
24 Search/check for older xorg/XFree versions, there *was* such layout.
25 But i won't recommend trying this to anyone.
