Kris:
I just installed new Alpha #22 and the install went very nicely, KDE 
seems to be doing fine and tried the ATI driver with 3D support. That 
seems to be working ok.I started having problems whn open office and 
Koffice apparently did not install, so tried from the Download PBIs. OO 
would not install from there so went to the URL you 
gave:pbibuild.pcbsd.org/....sort=date.. tried that. several packages 
would not load, K3B,openoffice, Thunderbird all complaining of corrupt 
files. However, Skype, Putty,, wireshark, gkrellm2. did install nicely. 
even WinFirefox3 installed bu could not run it as a user without 
changing ownerships of Programs/WinFirefox-3/WINFF (chown -R User:User).
 Needing an email client, I went to /usr/ports which had been installed, 
and tried make search name=thunderbird which as been failing since #20, 
requiring "make fetchindex". simply "make index" fails quickly. after 
finding the thunderbird directory, tried "make install clean". This has 
worked on at least #20 and #21 but not now. THe following is 
representative of soome three or four ports I tried:

 ===>   thunderbird-2.0.0.14_1 depends on executable: zip - found

Stop in /usr/ports/devel/nspr.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/mail/thunderbird.

Again, in the previous Alphas, making the ports has worked pretty good 
so something has definitly gone wrong. I probably should know how to 
correct that "make" problem, but I dont. I did try to make gmake and 
nspr but that failed too. I've been especially dissapointed in not 
having K3B as that has worked in Alpha #20 but not 21 or 22.
