Got XFCE4 installed after a get amount of tweaking.  It turns out
Portsnap did not update all the appropriate files so installed
"portupgrade" and did a portupgrade glib.  Glib was not the current
version needed for "usr/ports/x11-wm/xfce4". After the portupgrade
"make install clean" worked like a champ.

My "/etc/hosts" file was also missing the current domain so needed to
update that.

Was getting a "fbdev" error so downloaded and that
fixed that error.
