It is version 2.65 (not 6.5), and this version does look in /usr/X11R7:

| % grep -n X11R7 configure
| 6987:/usr/X11R7/include
| 6993:/usr/include/X11R7
| 6999:/usr/local/X11R7/include

The standard installation directory for X.Org is /usr, but NetBSD
apparently uses /usr/X11R7.  The autoconf changelog mentions that it
caters to that since version 2.64:

        Also try X11R7 when looking for X11 files, for NetBSD.
        * lib/autoconf/libs.m4 (_AC_PATH_X_DIRECT): Also try directories
        with X11R7 in the name.
