With modular ports we install some files in /usr/local/share/X11 and some 
in /usr/local/lib/X11. In this particular case, the server expects them to be 
in /usr/local/lib/X11. I'm not decided on whether we should move all in lib 
or modify default search path in server. Having them in lib mirrors previous 
location in /usr/X11R6 (where also mergebase script will move any custom 
app-defaults for example), but having such files in share feels a bit more
