After some recent discusssions on one of the pkg lists sysutils/FSViewer
was suggested as a lightweight file explorer with NextStep look and feel,
so out of curiosity I build, installed and tried to test it.

First suprise was that the pkg does not install any binary in the default
search paths. You have to invoke it as:


Next suprise was it opens a tiny window by default - and when you try to
resize it, it dies:

X Error of failed request:  BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  53 (X_CreatePixmap)
  Serial number of failed request:  15736
  Current serial number in output stream:  16008

I have not tried on other machines, this might be endianess trouble.
