There's an empty package "xorg-apps" in [extra], which depends on a bunch of xorg apps. The thing is, all the packages it depends on are already in a _group_ called "xorg-apps".

Even worse, that group has a lot more packages in it, but when you do 'pacman -S xorg-apps', the empty package takes precedence over the group and less packages are chosen.

xorg-apps was "added" as a meta package to ease transition. Looks like this will require a rebuild of freenx to get rid of the dependency there before xorg-apps can be removed.
