BTW I think the message in the /usr/ports/x11/xorg-clients/Makefile and in
the /usr/ports/x11/XFree86-4-clients/Makefile about WITH_SETUID_LUIT should
be corrected, because WITH_SETUID_LUIT=yes must be set also during 'make
install' and 'make reinstall'. Otherwise luit will be installed without setuid.
