This is only related to xfce4.

 stilly:/usr/pkgsrc/meta-pkgs/xfce4$ make show-var VARNAME=MESSAGE_SRC

I don't see the same repeated MESSAGE problem on two other systems (which
do not have xfce4).

And now I see meta-pkgs/xfce4/Makefile.common has:

MESSAGE_SRC?=           ${.CURDIR}/../../fonts/fontconfig/MESSAGE

That is broken as I detailed in other email (to tech-pkg). May I remove
that (although we are in freeze)?

Do any other packages do that too? (I don't see any.)
