I am trying in install Xfce4 in FreeBSD 7.0 on my laptop. I try to use
the ports by saying:

# cd /usr/ports/x11-wm/xfce4
# make install clean

But then I get the following error:

===>  Installing for xfce-4.4.2
===>   xfce-4.4.2 depends on file:
/usr/local/lib/xfce4/mcs-plugins/ - found
===>   xfce-4.4.2 depends on executable: xfwm4 - not found

I am clueless. Could somebody help?
