Please include this patch in upcoming pkgsrc-2012Q4 and possibly
backport to pkgsrc-2012Q3.  It is the difference between usable xfce4
on at least DragonFly, and according to Dave Tyson, NetBSD 6 as well.

This is a pretty interesting patch for both DragonFly and NetBSD. I am not set up to evaluate XFCE4 right now, I can only take Dave's and David's recommendation that it should be applied.

In any case, if this patch works as advertised, it would be a pull-up candidate. Is there somebody more equipped to test this patch?
