As an alternative I installed Xtools and even licensed it . I would like to get gimp and Nedit working . I have some experience on an Sgi running Irix. Some observations:
The client path seems to based on the fact that after installation all clients are placed in /usr/X11R6/bin/ , any new ones you have should then go here. I couldnt get absolute paths to work.
Installed mc but get "segmentation error" when i try to start it. Despite downloading and running the pkg as root. I am getting a bit suspicious of packages. I installed Apache/Php andMySQL all from the source and ignored pkg's they all worked fine.
Mouse buttons on Xtools do not work.
couldnt compile Nedit. Shame its a nice editor. I didnt percevere as much with the installation though so , when I get more time.....

if anyone has any tips on uninstalling stuff that would be usefull.
or any good faq's on XWindows

The NEdit homepage has a link to a Makefile that allows compilation of nedit for xtools.

Anoyone that wants it for use with XFree86/XDarwin, I have a link to precompiled binaries on the following page (as well as what may be some useful info to help with troubleshooting XDarwin problems):

Hope that helps!
