Nono, that would be bad indeed.  Luckily, you had a type above. The symlink
is actually:

ulysses:~# ls -l /usr/lib/X11
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           16 Feb 28 19:50 /usr/lib/X11 -> ../X11R6/lib/X11/

So instead a symlink, we now have the real stuff there were Packages would
expect it. All is fine!

You need a /bin/X11 -> ., though.  And the link /usr/include/X11 has to be
removed as there is now the real stuff, like with the lib example.
