I have created a new distcc-gtk from scratch, which now depends on the
existing (unmodified) distcc and gtk2, and adds a GTK+ based monitor
called distccmon-gnome + an icon and .desktop file.  No more CONFLICTS.  

You can find the package in pkgsrc-wip/wip/distcc-gtk/ or on .  

The package compiles from the same sources as distcc, but has a custom
BUILD_TARGET, and a manually defined do-install target.  

One issue though: the resulting binary is installed as distccmon-gnome,
but I would prefer to name it distcc-gtk, as it doesn't require Gnome
(it can though, optionally, but that would become a third package then).
What should I do: leave the package as is, or install the binary as
distcc-gtk, and add some patches so that the icon and .desktop file use
the -gtk name as well?  

Is there any chance to get this committed before the branch?  (as now it
doesn't change the existing distcc and thus can't break anything)
