Are you using a non-default linux_base? The default linux_base includes
the X11 directory in the, so we don't need the ldconfig
part. Trevor failed to add it to his non-default linux_base versions
even after I told him about the problem (I did it at least once, maybe
more than once).

The reason why the linux_base port has to have this in
instead of adding it when installing the linux-X11 bits is: the file is
owned by linux_base and no port should modify the files of other ports
if we can avoid it. Adding the directory in the linux_base port doesn't
hurt and causes a less complex de-/installation procedure for the
linux-X11 bits.
