Yeah, I completely sanitize my environment of MacPorts.  Also, if it  
was using the macports libX11, dropping your compiled one into /usr/ 
X11/lib wouldn't fix the problem...

Can you please look into this?  I've been beeting my brain.  Is there  
something you have not commit to libxtrans maybe that I'm missing?   
Can you test this out:

export CFLAGS="-Wall -O2 -arch i386 -arch ppc -arch x86_64 -arch ppc64  
tar xjf libX11-1.1.3.tar.bz2
cd libX11-1.1.3
./configure --prefix=/usr/X11 --mandir=/usr/X11/man --disable- 
dependency-tracking --disable-xf86bigfont --without-xcb --disable-static
sudo cp /usr/X11/lib/libX11.6.2.0.dylib /usr/X11/lib/ 
sudo make install
