ah, but there lies the problem, i think - libXcursor installs files
already installed by org-libraries (and the extra .la file). the issue is that
libXcursor depends on xproto and xextensions which break the build of a number
of ports I use (firefox,etc).
I'm trying now by using pkgtools.conf to replace xproto and xextensions with
xorglibraries.... if I knew how to create a .la file, then libXcursor could be
replaced too by xorglibraries...

and others are the XFree86 (and therefore older) equivalents of
