liw at dorfl$ ls -ld /usr/bin/X11
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 1 2007-04-12 21:08 /usr/bin/X11 -> .

Anything found via /usr/bin/X11 will be found via /usr/bin, so I don't
see any problem with removing /usr/bin/X11 from PATH. At least on new
installations -- will the symlink happen like that even on systems
upgraded from previous Debian releases?
