I have a couple of questions about and problems with this patch, and I'd
be interested to know KATO-san's reasoning behind them. Note, I think
it's really useful to have someone else take a look at this port, and my
updated was meant to be a functional, if not fully thought out update.
My point is, no criticism is implied here, just questions.

1. Does the USE_GNOME knob handle updating CONFIGURE_ARGS to include

2. I didn't include the --enable-xinerama knob by default because I
don't have the hardware to test it. My instinct is that it should be
hidden behind a WITH_XINERAMA knob.

3. The --with-vdesktop knob is experimental code, and not recommended
for production use by the window maker authors. I think it should be
hidden behind a WITH_WM_VDESKTOP knob.

4. I am wondering why the KDE option was removed by this patch.

5. I think that changing the shlib version number to 5 is a bad idea.
I'm not sure why the window maker authors chose to roll the number back
to 3, but I think that us changing it from what they have is a bad move.
I have sent a note to the wm-user list asking about this, I was waiting
to act until I get a response.

6. I dislike changes such as the s|Trebuchet MS,Luxi Sans|sans|g one. I
feel strongly that we should not be specifying things like this for the
users. Can you explain your rationale here?

7. I assume that the 2 new patches and one resurrected one are needed
for compiling on RELENG_4, yes? If so, I'll pass that info on to the

Meanwhile, thanks again for taking a look at this. :)
