Thanks for all the help, but I still get the same error message in the terminal running XFCE 11.0 alpha as I did when I first posted my problem installing Skype.

In ports there is net-im/skype and net-im/skype4, skype4 is the latest and skype is 2.###.

There's chance that net-im/skype won't work.

Thanks Eric, I installed skype4 from Ports, and it compiled and works fine.
