These appear to be different paths.

I think these two are best fixed by the usual mergemaster procedure
once src is updated.  There will be a gradual process of improvement
of ports (and src) to remove remaining references to /usr/X11R6 (but
note that we can probably never remove the symlink because of third
party binaries that hardcode it).

Yes, it could be.  I am not sure how important it is to fix these in
mergebase though.

This one probably should be fixed in mergebase.
