Just to add more clear explain about DATADIR change because I get two  
emails. We are just remove old hacks of DATADIR change, but a few paths do  
still have share/gnome that are default in GNOME world such as  
share/gnome/help for best example. If anyone want to know which  
share/gnome are not change can be view in misc/gnomehier/files/dirlist ..

If anyone have any problem with create a new port or with current port for  
build failure, plist error or else related with our change. Please feel  
free to send your report in gnome at FreeBSD.org and we will respone back  
with help.

Before anyone ask about why not test in pointyhat first. We did, but  
pointyhat has stability problems so it has missed some ports. We had to go  
ahead put in FreeBSD ports tree and we will be working on from there and  
we also will be keeping our eyes on pointyhat logs.
