This was a clean install. I`m building my mp3 box on that computer: started
with clean install of 6.2, cvsuped to stable, cvsuped ports, and then
installed the tightvnc port (I didn`t install the x11/xorg meta port) and
tried to start it. Then it said that it cannot find xauth, so I installed it,
then it complained about the "fixed" font, so I`v just installed the meta
xorg-fonts port to make life easier :) and I have the symlink, one of the
ports that tightvnc depends on created it.
