I am compiling GRASS myself and there was not any hint of this problem during
configure and building. I tried to issue a 'find / -name' for libX11.so.6.1
and such a file is indeed non-existent on the SUN UltraSparc 5 with
Pre-installed Solaris 2.7.

I've read the X11R6.4 release and SUN documentation, it seems that there is
not really a strong correspondence between Sun X servers and the X11 system
due to the graphics systems (ie. Creator, Creator 3D) provided by SUN.

Can anyone suggest how to go about this one? I need to get these libraries
loaded for the TclTk interface to work in GRASS. Thanks.
