Add a symbolic link to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11 in /usr/i486-linuxlibc1/lib, that
should correct the problem.

deepthought% ls -l /usr/i486-linuxlibc1/lib/
total 7
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root           19 Oct  2 12:50 X11 ->
-rw-r--r--   1 root     root         6464 Sep 29 12:18 libpaper.a
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root           39 Oct 14 13:04 libpaper.so ->
