	wm/metacity's PLIST tries to @dirrm two directories that are shared
	between multiple packages, like other windowmanagers or gnome stuff.
	(See patch below to see which are). The solution is to use the @unexec
	command with ${RMDIR} stuff, you know ;)
	Install metacity plus windowmaker plus gnome-core and then try to
	deinstall metacity.
	This should do the job:
