The justification is that /usr/X11R6 is "special" -- it's a standard part
of the FSH. As long as X libraries are supposed to be installed there,
it seems clear that the related .pc files should be placed in the same
If we can get the FSG to move the X libraries to /usr/lib, then pkg-config
should change as well.
