First, cheers to all on board :)

I just installed Dragonfly 1.2, cvs-upped to 1.2.1, and then wanted to 
start compiling the eyecandy part -
X, window managers, etc.. I chose the pkgsrc method, xorg compiled 
flawlessly, then I tried to compile
gtk2 - with an error saying -lpthread isn't available. I google-d that 
it's a common bug - or at least was at
the beginning of this month - someone even posted it to the pkgsrc 
development list. I'd like to ask two

1, Is this the right place to ask this type of question? If not, please 
forgive my off-topic mail, it won't happen

2, If it is, have someone had success building gtk2 from pkgsrc? At this 
time it's v2.6.7. I've seen some Makefile
patches, for older versions, tried to apply some schemas from them, with 
no success. It's probably that I'm too lame
for complex makefiles...

Thanks in advance,
