Got it working: apparently there's a +deskmenu flag in the CVS ebuild; enabling it adds the support.

However, now there's another problem on xfdesktop startup that causes it to crash:
$ xfdesktop
xfdesktop: art_render_gradient.c:337: art_render_gradient_linear_render_8: Assertion `(stops[ix-1].offset <= offset_fraction + 1e-6) || ((stops[ix].offset > (1.0 - 1e-6)) && (offset_fraction < 1e-6 ))' failed.

Is there a problem in the current (probably about a week old) CVS?  Or is this related to the Gentoo ebuild?

Thanks in advance,
