[PC-BSD Testing] 9-RC2 Gnome Preferences menu ambiguity

When a fresh 9-RC2 amd64 system with only the GNOME desktop is
installed, two screensaver apps are available via the
System/Preferences menu. However, both are labeled identically as
"Screensaver" although one is the gnome-screensaver-preferences app
and the other is the xscreensaver-demo app. In addition, only the
gnome-screensaver daemon is actually running. If the xscreensaver-demo
app is launched, it prompts to change this state of affairs by
stopping the gnome-screensaver daemon. Perhaps a less confusing setup
would be to install only one of the two screensavers, or to make the
preferred screensaver a choice during the OS installation.
