Tk events break if built with x11proto-core 7.0.13+
This is a known Bug in Perl/Tk. It is already fixed in the current developer
release at CPAN.org but not in the stable release used for pkgsrc.
The bug description along with the patch (downloadable from the bug report) can
be found at:
Myself, I ran into the problem when using the Listbox widget of Perl/Tk,
resulting in this error message:
"no event type or button # or keysym at Widget.pm line" ...
The patchfile is available for download on the CPAN bug report page:
It patches the file pTk/mTk/generic/tk.h , replacing some #define lines.
Simply putting the patchfile into the x11/p5-Tk/patches directory and "bmake
makepatchsum" solved the problem after a recompile.
