I've seen similar problems and most of the times the cure has been to
manually create a link to the library in question (used for versioning
of libraries):

# cd /usr/X11/lib
# ln -s /usr/X11/lib/libXxf86misc.so.1 libXxf86misc.so.1.1

I suspect that the link has not been created during package
installation.  Just give it a try.
