To clarify: these packages install headers in /usr/X11R6/include/X11/.
(I think maybe I wanted to put libs in /usr/X11R6/lib, but I guess that
isn't what I actually did...)

Sure, it's possible, but then they wouldn't be in the standard location,
so I'm not really inclined to do that. But:

A better solution is to create fd.o-xlibs-dev that Provides: xlibs-dev
and Depends: on all of the packages that have the files that are in the
current xlibs-dev. (That requires packaging all the other modules with
all of that stuff in them...) That's on my mental to-do list for this
packaging, but I can't get to it in the next couple of weeks. It would
rock if somebody did though. (hint, hint)

Cool! How'd it go?

It sounds like, for the moment, your needs are best served by installing
from CVS. :-) Sorry.
