While building wm/awesome I've got this error:

/usr/bin/ld: awesome.o: undefined reference to symbol 'XShapeQueryExtension'
/usr/bin/ld: note: 'XShapeQueryExtension' is defined in DSO /usr/pkg/lib/ so try adding it to the linker command line
/usr/pkg/lib/ could not read symbols: Invalid operation
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
*** Error code 1


Just attempt to build the package:

$ cd /usr/pkgsrc/wm/awesome/
$ sudo bmake install

As a workaround I've made this patch which add libXext missing in the message above and libX11 for the subsequent errors that would come.

 I feel this issue will be happened with binutils-2.22, same as dragonfly-master.

awesome has switched to CMake; has this fixed the issue?
