OK, thanks.

Actually I think the problem is on the HowToBuild wikit page.  You have:

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=:/opt/trinity/lib/pkgconfig:

(split only for email readability)

however, I think it should be:

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/trinity/lib/pkgconfig:

As I already had PKG_CONFIG_PATH set with /opt/xorg/lib/pkgconfig, it
made a difference, and the -lX11 flags now appear correctly.
