fluxbox-devel may use the same styles but almost all other files have
been modified or (in case of the styles) will contain modifications when

I did not think about having two ports installed at first but when you
came up with that it seems to be a good idea and fluxbox-devel should
have a -devel tag on all binaries and the share directory.
