Hi Hubert and all,

I think there is something missed. Gnome.
Binary and source pkgs are broken.

Gnome from the binary pkg is broken because it's not
compiled to work with the newer freetype-lib-1.3.1
which is needed by gv and instead it needs freetype-lib-1.2
which if installed makes gv fail.

I tried to build all from source. In fact I ripped out every
single binary package and reinstalled all from source to
see if this was successful. All the packages built really well
but again gnome had a problem. This time it was in the part
gnome-games. It has a problem with references to "gettext".
I'm trying to look at the problem but I don't know how to
solve it yet. There are already some packages installed named
along the lines of gettext. I think it's trying to avoid conflicting
with these and ending up not seeing any, ie can't link to the
installed gettext or the local symbols named gettext. The
output is as follows:

cc -O2 -Wl,-R/usr/X11R6/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -Wl,-R/usr/pkg/lib
-L/usr/pkg/lib -Wl,-R/usr/X11R6/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -Wl,-R/usr/pkg/lib

Can someone help me with this "gettext" problem please?
