Maybe, but I thinks ripping out XFree completly isn't the right thing to=20

Yes, I saw that. What I'm missing is Xrandr as a released version, because=20
that is needed by Gtk+2.

Hmm. I think that's a bit problematic. We now have two xrender packages=20
(three if you count xsrc). IMHO this should be one and pick the right X11=20
libs depening on a make variable (or detecting installed
X11 libs). To avoid problems with binary pkgs (and to keep the status quo)=20
it should default to the xsrc ones.

For Xft2, render, xrender, xcursor, xrandr, freetype, fontconfig and expat=20
however, the pkg version (build against the xsrc X11 libs) should IMHO be=20
the default.
