First, I changed the xorg guide to recommend installing xorg-server rather than xorg-x11. Functionally the two are identical, though the later versions of xorg-x11 (~arch will soon go stable) add in dozens of unnecessary font packages in many different languages. It's all just bloat, so that warning is now in the guide. Second, I updated the Xfce guide for 4.6. This includes new USE flags, packages, renames, configuration, and more. I also slightly reworded the reference to the Xorg guide. Really, at this point, probably all our guides should mention it at the beginning. Up until now, if one didn't properly configure xorg.conf and various settings, then you could really hose your box. Now that xorg-server-1.5 is here, that may change. The next big task (that someone needs to get OFF his LAZY ass and DO) is update the xorg-config guide: http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=267769
