I disagree with NetBSD's PREFIX. I would go with the global prefix,  
/usr/local. 85% of configure has the /usr/local by default and FreeBSD  
already has /usr/local (to kill the colour discussions), so all we have to  
do is remove /usr/X11R6. Before you ask how we can test if the port is  
respect the prefix, we should be able to find out very easy when you work  
with pkg-plist by follow the porter handbook.

BTW: FreeBSD doesn't has to be weird. :-)
