Yes, this makes sense.  Depending on your installation, the various bits
of X can be littered everywhere, and then linked to one another.

What you really want to do is follow the /usr/X11R6/ tree down.  Make sure
everything you need is there, then make sure that the links that you have
are the right ones.

Many problems in X result simply from not having a single library or link.
