Glad to hear it's working for you!

I'm afraid you may find down the road that software will complain about
shared libraries & being unable to relocate, blah, blah, blah.  In that
case, you might need to find the library that the software is
complaining about, figure out what to which package it belongs, and
recompile that package with -fPIC in the C{XX}FLAGS.

Great.  I know I promised a while back to set up an httpup ports
repository for contrib on x86_64...  Might be a while out yet, but if
you find there's something you can't get compiled out of contrib, ask
me, I may have a modified port to loan you.

When you get those, try one of the following:

1) add to pkgmk.conf a line like this:

	LDFLAGS="-L/usr/X11R6/lib64 $LDFLAGS"

2) add at the top of the build section of your Pkgfile:

	export LDFLAGS="-L/usr/X11R6/lib64 $LDFLAGS"

Thanks!  I'm really glad people are finding it useful.
