Let's moving it to freebsd-gnome, so remove freebsd-current from CC.

It looks like it's GNOME1, so it's what you are using? You need to show us  
your pkg_info. If you are using GNOME2, then right click on the panel and  
click on 'add to panel' to add 'Notification Area Applet'.

BTW: There is no 'docklet' term in GNOME2 that I know.
