I had to do this too - add the X libraries to ldconfig by hand.  This
was installing on a "virgin" system - not even DOS installed :-)

Also, I found many of the packages required "X11R6", and couldn't
figure out what supplied that.  I would have figured "xbase", but it
did not.  I ended up installing "xcompat" from my attic of debian
packages.  Note that I grabbed 1.2 a day or two before it was official
- I might have a problem with MY copy of the distribution.
