Well, pkg_rmleaves is a port itself. It's in ports-mgmt/pkg_rmleaves

Please make sure these ports are installed:

I am afraid I can do both in my install from the XFCE menu.  (Settings
=> Display and Settings => Appearance)
I don't know why you are not getting the menus.
Could you try creating a new user account and see if it works? It could
be something wrong in your dot files.

I've got another system with XFCE that I will be upgrading tonight -
I'll let you know if it works out differently.
