	teTeX configure guesses X11 to reside in /usr/openwin
	go to the teTeX pkgsrc dir and say make, observe how configure
	sets the X11 prefix to /usr/openwin
	just a workaround: 'ln -s /usr/X11R6 /usr/openwin'

That's not true: 
===>  Building for teTeX-0.4p8 
checking for X11 libraries... yes 
checking for X10 libraries... no 
checking for X... libraries /usr/X11R6/lib, headers /usr/X11R6/include 

The reason for the whole problem is probably that you have that link. Remove 
it and everything will work fine.
