Yes, 0.39 does not work with FreeBSD 4.X. Since that is our current
production release, it would be ashame to alienate those users. Our
resident C++ expert says that work is underway by the inkscape
developers to add gtkmm support which will fix this.
In the meantime, version 0.39 is in the MarcusCom CVS repo at
