First, the x86_64 is properly called amd64 (they were the original
creators of it, Intel only made up that em64t nonsense as a marketing

With the X.org transition, /usr/X11R6 essentially went away and
everything moved under /usr as prescribed by the FHS.

Without an *actual* error message, it really tough to tell what exactly
is missing or going wrong.
