I am maintaining for fluxbox-devel in FreeBSD and Jason has reported me
about that DragonFly can't find the strftime() during the configure check
that caused the clock disable in Fluxbox. All version of FreeBSD (include
4.x) don't have any of problem. The code looks like this in the configure:

#include <time.h>
main ()

char * s;
time_t t = time(NULL);
size_t x = strftime(s, 5, "%a", localtime(&t));

  return 0;

Jason has to add '#include <sys/types.h>' to fix this problem for
DragonFly, but I am not sure if it's a bug in DragonFly or his system is
broke. Two folks in IRC (#freebsd-gnome) said that time.h should be good
enough for this as stated in the manpage in a link.
