I updated my ports tree, but it doesn't seem that anything related was
updated when I cvsupped so I think it was complete:

Updating collection ports-all/cvs
Edit ports/deskutils/deskbar-applet/Makefile
Edit ports/deskutils/deskbar-applet/files/
Edit ports/devel/desktop-file-utils/Makefile
Edit ports/devel/glib20/Makefile
Edit ports/devel/glib20/files/patch-glib_gutils.c
Edit ports/ftp/proftpd/Makefile
Finished successfully

uname -v shows:

FreeBSD 6.2-PRERELEASE #0: Fri Oct 20 18:39:35 JST 2006
root at bender:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/SMP

So maybe it is that the base system is too old?  I won't be able to
get to fixing that until this weekend (and probably not then either),
but it seems like maybe that is my best hpe at the moment?

best regards,

Bob McDonald
