I tried, but got the message:

  Files required for this package to work are missing.
  There are no packages that I know of that contain the
  missing files. Sorry.

I had forgotten this happened.  Apparently, the extra stuff I extracted from
the Mac OS X disk did not include enough of X11 after all.  I'll have to have a look
again at home this evening.

I find:

[dhcp17:~/papers/kobg] rrb% cd /usr/X11R6/lib
[dhcp17:/usr/X11R6/lib] rrb% ls
libAppleWM.a            libXaw.a                libXpm.a                libexpat.a
libFS.a                 libXcursor.a            libXrandr.a             libfntstubs.a

libSM.a                 libXi.a                 libXvMC.a               libxkbfile.a
libX11.a                libXinerama.a           libXxf86misc.a          libxkbui.a

libXTrap.a              libXmuu.a               libdps.a
libXau.a                libXp.a                 libdpstk.a

but the i-Installer error messages asks for libX11.dylib from this directory.

I no longer feel Unix savvy enough to accept the challenge ot 'Install anyway'.
