Hi,

The version fribidi in FreeBSD ports does not support this. The ports version of fribidi is at 0.10.4 whereas the fvwm2-devel port expects to see fribidi 0.10.7, which includes the additional definitions.

The only thing I can do in the interim is to mark that part of the fvwm2-devel port broken and nudge the gnome@ folks to upgrade (not sure what an upgraded fribidi will break in gnome).

Other than that I can think of an ugly solution, that is to create a sister port to our fribidi port that uses 0.10.7 instead.
