The XFce people will soon release version 4.2. I've tracked their efforts
quite long time now and I'm happy to report that everything is working just
fine with NetBSD/i386 2.0.

As the xmas present for all you tech-pkg@ members I've made my current
pkgsrc mods publically available. Feel free to report any problems to me.

Below's a short howto...


# Fetch the files
cd /tmp
cd /usr/pkgsrc
tar xzf /tmp/xfce42rc3.tgz

# Remove all existing xfce4 packages. Repeat this until all xfce4 packages
# are gone.
pkg_info | grep xfce | cut -d" " -f1 | xargs pkg_delete

# Install XFce 4.2 RC3 (a.k.a
cd /usr/pkgsrc/meta-pkgs/xfce4
make install
make clean clean-depends
