Description shurd 2000-04-19 10:00:01 UTC
When running some of the ports (I remember the iNES port but others do it
too with some variation on the version)
it returns the error 
ld.so failed: Can't find shared library "libXext.so.6.3"
I've tried creating a symbolic link to libXext.so.6 in the /usr/X11R6/lib
directory - no difference

How-To-Repeat: make install the iNES port (/usr/ports/emulators/ines) then try execting
the ines binary.

You need to install the XFree86-aoutlibs port; unfortunately, I don't know 
of a way to add it to the port since the current bsd.port.mk only checks 
for ELF libraries. Perhaps this should be fixed in bsd.port.mk? Or am I 
missing a totally different solution here?
