Well, "asfiles" is a file manager, not a "window manager".  The
latest version of "asfiles" seems to be 1.0, so perhaps you're
thinking of some other port, or your tree is slightly 'stale' (I
keep my ports tree updated with cvsup regularly).

Could you send the output of `pkg_info | grep -i window`, please?
