I'm having fun playing with pkgsrc/wip/xfce4, which is the
latest incarnation of xfce, version 4.3.99.

I especially like Thunar, the low-calorie-back-to-basics gui
file manager, which is very much in the original spirit of
the xfce project.

thunar-vfs-os-bsd.c:110: error: structure has no member named

dp is "struct dirent *dp;"

After studying <sys/dirent.h> I substituted _DIRENT_DIRSIZ(dp)
wherever dp->d_reclen appears.  Much to my amazement, it all
seems to work :o)

My question, I guess, is whether my patching is the best way
to fix the problem.  I had to edit one file in four spots to
make it compile, which seems a bit inconvenient for porting
other applications to DF.  (I dunno how many apps might use
