I don't remember exactly what I did, but /etc/X11/X is a link to
/usr/bin/X11/Xorg and /usr/bin/X11/Xorg is a link to
/usr/X11R6/bin/Xorg. I also show /usr/bin/X11/X linked to
/usr/X11R6/bin/X (X and Xorg are the only entries in /usr/bin/X11).
If you have a file "a" and want to create a link to it called "b", use
sudo ln -s a b
