Thanks for your PR. Although I have been hesitant adding unofficial
patches to the dmenu and dwm ports, this looks very interesting. I
have however some questions:
Are you the original author of this patch and/or do you plan to
If so, would you care to host/list it on the community wiki at
Some technical remarks:
- I do not agree with XFT defaulting to On.
- Why is a '-bh' option added? It seems unrelated to XFT.
- Why is the '-sf' option removed? This can/will break existing
Apologies for the late reply.

No, I'm not the author of that patch, but I just customized the patch to suit
port. Anyways, the patch is not difficult to maintain, so I can maintain it :).

Okay, fine. This can be fixed.

I'm not an extensive user of dmenu, but I can look at it. At the moment, I'm a
bit busy but I can reply to you with an updated patch and with any
explanations you seek, in a week or 10 days.

This diff looks better. I've tested it on my FreeBSD 8.0 system
without problems. Attached patch is a slightly modified version that
may be committed. Notable changes:
* Xft is off by default.
* The patch is not included in the port tree, but at a PATCH_SITE: The
same location of my dmenu sources MASTER_SITE mirror.
Thanks for your work on this patch.
I'll take it.
