    The X11 package that ships with OS X (or downloadable for 10.3 and earlier) uses quartzwm as a window manager which will give X11 windows a native look and feel as far as possible. However, xmms is an oddity in that it turns off the window controls altogether and opts to draw its own. Try starting an xterm and you'll see the quartzwm controls.

    Having read your other thread, I'm wondering if it was the uninstallation method, rather than the installation method itself, that killed rosetta.

    You should probably try using fink instead of Darwin Ports, as opendarwin is in the process of shutting down. It uses apt-get and dpkg to manage packages, like Debian and Ubuntu among others, so the tools are tried and tested.
