 By keeping both a pkgsrc-2017Q1 and a pkgsrc-2017Q2 tree, I've managed
 to build all of my usual complement of software except "xfce4" and
 "xfce4-extras" from pkgsrc-2017Q2.  I then built "xfce4" and "xfce4-extras"
 from pkgsrc-2017Q1.  The system is amd64-7.1_STABLE with native Xorg.
 This hybrid arrangement seems to work and the older XFCE looks quite nice
 and seems to function properly.
 As an adjunct to this, I removed "firefox" and built "www/firefox52"
 since it can still be built with gtk2 and doesn't require GCC 4.9 or
 later on netbsd-7.
 I'll be updating my other machines in a similar fashion soon.
