Currently, you have to use LD_LIBRARY_PATH to run any X binary. This
is a general problem which is not supposed to be solved on a package
per package basis, so the first patch should not be required. Use
LD_LIBRARY_PATH for now, really.

Regarding the second patch, it would be better to use DEB_BUILD_GNU_SYSTEM
instead and compare it with "gnu", since I would expect that if
something like IPv6 does not work on i386-gnu systems, it will surely
not work on alpha-gnu systems either.

BTW: This variable is already set in the build environment so you can
use it directly, there is no need to use dpkg-architecture for that.
