    Be sure you have a completely fresh build/installworld and completely
    fresh ports and dfports, then deinstall the dependant ports (in particular
    imake) and rebuild and reinstall.

    It took a lot of work, er, hacking, to get XFree86 to compile.  If after
    all of that there are still problems, post the tail end of the output to
    the list.

    KDE and Gnome are another deal entirely... they would require a lot more
    work to get working.
