I am a newbye with NetBSD (I am a Linux, FreeBSD and OpenBSD 
user/administrator though, I thought it was time to give NetBSD a try... 
:) ) and I want to try the GnuSTEP packages on my box.

I downloaded on July 2nd 2003 the port tree and I rebuilt everything 
from scratch from there (any single package, from m4 to gnustep-1.6.0) 
with 'make package'
I decided then to use gworkspace (based on gnustep) instead of 
WindowMaker as a workspace manager. I rebuilt and installed the 
gworkspace 0.4 package.

I have problems with it. I don't know if I have done something wrong but 
when I start it, I only get "half" of it so to say. It's difficult to 
explain. I can do it though if you want to know more about what is 
happening but as I said, I have the feeling that some parts are missing 
or not started.

Now here is my question. I saw that gworkspace has now reached version 
0.5.3. Is it possible to update the portsrc tree to reflect that change? 
My problems with gworkspace are maybe simply due to the fact that 0.4 is 
an early version.
I am willing to test the package and report any problem or question I 
would have. As I said, I want to give NetBSD a try and in the meantime 
to play a little with with what gnustep/gworkspace has to offer.
