Same results on my home vm.. $PATH has both /usr/X11R6/bin and /usr/X11R7/bin and they are real directories

In both my VM's (work and home) that have netbsd .. they both have /usr/X11R6/bin and /usr/X11R7/bin .. and I just verified they indeed are distinct directories (not symlinks)

Oddly enough, Project Center and Gorm magically started to work on the work VM of netbsd yesterday.. I have no clue why either.. i didn't touch it...though my home one is still having the same issue in this thread.

When i get home I'll give my home one a whirl and see if i can check out the PATH and configure stuff

Hi Nick,

with Nicola's findings I think it is important to have a look at the
config.log and config.h files produced by configure. Somehow two
different versions of X11 are found and this is a problem in itself and
needs to be fixed. And this may resolve your original issue as well.
Are these directories actually different or is one a link to the other
and where could the wrong one come from? Here you should check your path
environment variable:
echo $PATH
