Hello Marcus,

Have you already seen gnome-netstatus port is broken due to a bad call to

ports/gnome-netstatus/src/netstatus-sysdeps.c is patched by adding support
for wireless compatibility with these lines ..

+#if __FreeBSD_version >= 602000
+#include <net80211/ieee80211.h>
+#include <net80211/ieee80211_ioctl.h>

but a recent update in src/sys/dev/wi/if_wavelan_ieee.h disable C
structure 'struct wi_req' ..

#if 0
struct wi_req {
	u_int16_t	wi_len;
	u_int16_t	wi_type;
	u_int16_t	wi_val[WI_MAX_DATALEN];
