Description Tom Flynn 2000-05-28 08:02:24 EDT
Under Red Hat Linux, one has to add -L/usr/X11R6/lib to one's makefile
in order to link any program that uses X in any way.  This breaks
compatability with all other Unices.  A simple solution is to add
/usr/X11R6/lib to the ldscripts for the linker.

The current path compiled into the ldscripts is:
SEARCH_DIR(/lib); SEARCH_DIR(/usr/lib); SEARCH_DIR(/usr/local/lib);
