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.

Yeah... I installed from the DragonFly snapshot and then have been CVSuping
ever since. Is there any other step I should take to make sure I do this cleanly?

I can't build the kernel today either.

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.

I don't even see the XFree86-Server port... just libs. I am doing CVSup and
cvs update -dP to get that.

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

Yep. I don't really have the time or interest to work on GNOME but I will see what
I can do for KDE. Its probably not going to be a one-man job in the long run though.
