Deep in the middle of the xorg upgrade on my AMD-64.  Actually, I'm 
probably only barely started.

I went ahead and started to upgrade anyway.  Following directions on
the wiki page, I first upgraded x11-common, and was told the upgrade 
failed; specifically because the symbolic link /usr/include/X11
did not exist.
This was while processing 

SHould I create this link manually?  Or will that break the package 
(whatever it is) that is *supposed* to have installed it?
If so, where should it point?
