One of the most frustrating things I found about some of the large
distros; they seem to support only GNOME or KDE.  If you're not able
to find *any* 4.2 packages for Xfce, I'd seriously reconsider distro
choice.  However, it's likely that some user somewhere has set up a
repository for Xfce packages.  Make sure you search well.

(Using Mandrake really helped my search skills for finding packages. 
Now I just use Arch and can easily make my own.)
