Fvwm2 2.5.17 was released, however it contains a nasty little bug which 
causes it to ignore colour specification for the text in a title bar. Until 
this issue is addressed, I will hold off on updating the port. If anyone 
wants an unofficial updated fvwm2-devel port for 2.5.17, it is available at 
http://komquats.com/ports/ fvwm2-devel-2.5.17.tar.bz2.
