Notes from UPDATING
These upgrade notes are taken from /usr/ports/UPDATING
  • 2009-03-04
    Affects: users of x11-wm/xfce4
    Author: oliver@FreeBSD.org
    Reason: 
      When upgrading from Xfce 4.4 to 4.6 make sure you uninstall the following
      ports:
    
    	x11/libxfce4mcs
    	sysutils/xfce4-mcs-manager
    	sysutils/xfce4-mcs-plugins
    	x11-themes/xfce4-icon-theme
    
      You may uninstall them before you start the upgrade procedure (preferred)
      or even afterwards when the upgrade went fine.
    
      Please also note that Xfce 4.6 does not come with an icon theme any more.
      Xfce 4.6 now depends on the Tango theme which is now installed by default.
      The default installation of Xfce is also adjusted to use this icon theme
      instead of the Xfce 4.4 standard Rodent theme.  If you are upgrading from
      Xfce 4.4 to 4.6 you probably still have the Rodent theme selected.  This
      will lead to several "missing" icons when starting up Xfce.
    
      Make sure to switch as well to the Tango theme.  To do this just open the
      Settings Manager and select Appearance.  Inside the Appearance dialog
      switch to the Icons tab and select the "Tango" entry in the list on the
      left side of the Icons tab.
    
      For enabling the Reboot/Shutdown functionality of Xfce's logout dialog
      please read the note which gets printed out after the installation of
      x11-wm/xfce4 about how to configure PolicyKit.
