After rebuilding all ports, pretty much everything works.

Except in xfce4, I cannot change the background. And the file manager thunar has disappeared. And probably a bunch of other stuff.

It seems as though x11-wm/xfce4-desktop is not a dependency of x11-wm/xfce4-desktop any more.

I would have thought it should be integral. For a DE, you do really need a D.

Beware, if you upgrading xfce, some bits might need a bit of fiddling.

Hello Geezer,
It seems as though x11-wm/xfce4-desktop is not a dependency of x11-wm/xfce4-desktop any more.

This sentence don't make sense to me xD

Anyway, the meta-package for the XFCE desktop is actually x11-wm/xfce4.

xfce4-desktop is in that sense only the desktop of the xfce4 environment so i doesn't include all components.

But it is still strange that thunar have disappeared for you because its a rundep for xfce4-desktop and is in the repository.
