Weird. Neither of the two sgi_altix machines we have even have a
/usr/X11R6/lib64 directory. Does your machine have a /usr/X11R6/lib

Unless you really need to run xleap on an altix, a workaround is to just
give the "-noX11" flag to configure.

If you want to track it down, figure out exactly how you are compiling the
leap files. My guess is that you are compiling 32 bit versions, then failing
to link into what are 64-bit versions of the X-libraries.
