Oh. Well that's a bit different. Sorry.

If your system is like min and has the default X11 from Apple installed
then you're just off by a directory name. Make a symlink from /usr/X11 to
/usr/X11R6 and it should work. I don't know what to say about the apple
remote though. That's a compile time option and I'm not familiar with that
particular package.
