Using -DCMAKE_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/X11R6/lib64 should do the trick, as per
the BUILDING file. Ideally the FindX11.cmake (or whatever) file should
do this automatically.

When posting error messages on mailing lists it's often worth re-running
the job in the `C' locale, eg:


since this produces POSIX formatted error messages in English. This is a
multilingual list, but the devs' common language is English and you'll
get a better response faster if you stick to it for really technical
stuff like error messages.
