And reading things like:
Increased support for FreeDesktop.org standards in KDE 3.2 strengthens=20
interoperability with other Linux and UNIX software.
make be believe it's just the beginning..

IMHO: fontconfig, Xft2, freetype2, Xrender, xcursor and Xrandr should be=20
taken from pkgsrc.
Maybe we should put it into bsd.pkg.defaults.mk like this:
FDO_LIBS=3D fontconfig Xft2 freetype2 Xrender xcursor Xrandr
To give users a hint that those libraries belong together...
bzip2, zlib, openssl, db should be native.
BTW, for my patches to work correctly I had to change x11-links (to exclude =
headers/libs) and gtk2's/qt3-libs' (some buildlinks eg. Xrandr, xcursor)=20
buildlink/Makefile as well. So, there's still some work to do.
