I made sure to mention this in the Xfce guide after finding all this out
on my own . . . "the hard way." :) Take a look at emerge -p --depclean
output and go over the world file to see what's up on your system, using
emerge --noreplace foo to add stuff back in. And be sure to re-read the
Xfce guide if you're wondering which packages should prolly be kept.
