You can remove the fluxbox-devel and fluxbox in this diff. The
fluxbox-devel is no longer depend on XFree86-client. As for fluxbox will
be remove too when maintainer approves or fluxbox-devel merges into
fluxbox when 1.0 is released.
A question, how would you like me to deal with the libXrender? The
x11/gcursor, my port, will need the libXrender if xorg is installed. It
doesn't need this if XFree86-lib is installed. If you already have this
plan, then nevermind and I will wait.
Thanks for your works!
