The new xfce4.8 does not display most icons, although they are 
installed.  Settings were migrated from 4.6.

(xfce4-settings-manager:1314): Gtk-WARNING **: Could not find the icon 
'preferences-desktop'. The 'hicolor' theme
was not found either, perhaps you need to install it.
You can get a copy from:

Icons in the preferences window and for most menu entries are missing or 
shown as broken (red X).  Many menu entries are missing entirely.  The 
Settings menu from the panel is empty.

xfce4-panel core dumps randomly.

Rebuilding all the libxfce* and xfce* ports has not made a difference.

A few xfce ports still show old versions:
