Yes but one guy said he's working on source based one.

Seems to me that FreeBSD is broken as far as everything which uses those
libnames... it's not only fpc problem. Old binaries won't work on new
freeBSD and vice versa. It's their idiocy not our, we didn't rename
those libs 2x.

You don't have a bugfix, you can't ifdef ports version. It doesn't
depend on OS version of FreeBSD but on the fact that the person has new
ports or not. If someone on 6.0 updates his ports he'll have the new "-"
version of glib and others. Same for 5.4.

See above.

Your signature is broken.
