On this note, if at all possible/realistic please get xfree-4.3.0-r4
instead of 4.3.0-r3 into your snapshots as the stable xfree for GRP,
etc. It contains at least one security fix for an exploitable buffer
overflow.

It's currently stable on every arch but alpha, and agriffis is testing
there.

Thanks,
Donnie
