Why?! You totally misunderstand what's going on - xwmm is not broken. It's 
failing on the _alpha_ platform, and that's caused by a bug in gcc, not xwmm. 
So why do you want to remove it?

It's nice you want to help getting the community maintained ports back into 
shape, but xwmm does not need maintainance. The best thing for you to do 
would be to go on and try to fix a different port from the list.
