>Description:
Hello

I have taken the liberty to update fvwm2-themes to the latest
version 0.7.0. Patch is to big to paste into this window. I have put it online at:

http://www.ludd.ltu.se/~nordlund/fvwm2-themes.0.7.0


One problem though.. When trying it together with fvwm-devel (instead
of fvwm2) I noticed that it did not really work.. The reason is this
line (from the original version of fvwm2-themes/Makefile):

CONFIGURE_ARGS+=        --with-ft-datadir=${PREFIX}/share/fvwm2

There is a mismatch between configuration directories in the different
fvwm versions in pkgsrc, and it breaks here. fvwm-devel will use
${PREFIX}/share/fvwm instead of .../fvwm2, which confuses fvwm2-themes.

Since all fvwm variants CONFLICTS with any other fvwm, i.e. it is
not possible to have two installed at the same time, I suggest making
sure that they all use the same directory under ${PREFIX}/share.

Another possibility is to make fvwm2-themes "discover" which fvwm
directory under ${PREFIX}/share to use.. I do not really know how to
implement this in a good way. Or make an PKG_OPTION out of it.. But it feels clumsy at best..

 I don't know that it's a problem, having an fvwm2-themes-devel
 to go with fvwm-devel doesn't seem entirely unreasonable.  I'd
 like other opinions on that, from more regular pkgsrc contributors.

 Having fvwm2-themes-devel is good procedure.

 Having slept on it, I'd guess it should match fvwm-devel, in that
 it is themes for it, and not a devel version of fvwm-themes, so
 fvwm-devel-themes?

 I prefer fvwm-themes-devel, even if it's not logically correct,
 because of consistency, but I'll leave this up to you.

 Cheers,
  Thomas
