NO..your are completely right! :-) Rereading the OP, I had thought your
interpretation of 'prefix' was incorrect until a few seconds ago. Now,
what to do to make it more clear for others that will read it in the
future? I think replacing '</usr>' with '<PREFIX>' in the book's
command should make it more clear what to do. Also, replace 'adjust as
necessary' with 'replace <PREFIX> with your X Window System installation
prefix' in the text above the command. Sound good?
