I'm thinking I will leave Xfce at 4.6 in MacPorts, unless any
users step up that is actually using it now that Darwin died.
It's at Xfce 4.2 in Fink, so it's not _that_ bad off... :-)
The main user was PureDarwin, which didn't release in 2010.


PS. Too many missing dependencies, is the main reason.
    i.e. someone would need to port the various Kits ?
