If I understood the sed command correctly, it replaces /usr/X11R6 in the
files with /usr or whatever </usr> is replaced with. So /usr/X11R6 is in
the original files and mustn't be changed, because otherwise the sed
command wouldn't make sense at all. But if you have another X prefix than
/usr (say /usr/X11R7 you have to change the sed argument to
's@/usr/X11R6@/usr/X11R7 at g'

Am I completely wrong here?
