The NAS check hard-codes the prefix values for /usr/X11 and /usr/X11R6
in  That is silly, but the sed mentioned by Simon does
work around the problem as done so many other places in the book.  As
far as fixing properly, it'll be a pain without using something like
'which nasd | sed 's@/bin/....@@' to determine the searchpath (I know
there is a better sed, but the command escapes me ATM).  Lets hope NAS
ditches xmkmf, goes to autotools, and adopts pkgconfig in the future. :-)
